This past week, Jim Meehan of New York's infamous speakeasy Please Don't Tell was in San Francisco. For one night, San Francisco's Fifth Floor (a bar in the Hotel Palomar) turned into PDT, and it was awesome. Here are some photos from the event:
It was packed and dark, so it was hard to get good pictures but we tried our best:
This bartender was a champ. There were so many people at his table, and he didn't even break a sweat.
This East India Negroni (Banks 5 Rum, Campari, Lustau East India Sherry) was from Meehan's own hand. I loved this drink. Switching the gin out for rum is brilliant, and subbing sherry for vermouth is sheer genius. Such an interesting flavor profile.
Smoked Potato Tots to fuel the tanks.
The man himself, Jim Meehan.
I love this image of him because while everyone around him is in motion and his hands are everywhere, his face is perfectly concentrated.
If you want to visit the normal Fifth Floor, it's at:
