The Adult Sundae Bar

As the summer gets busier here in Hollywood, it is important to have something that makes the experience for the guest memorable,” says David Levy, general manager of Jane’s House in Hollywood, Calif.

Creating a memorable experience has been Levy’s motto, so when Cabana Cachaça reps came to him offering an alternative to “shot girls” to entice guests to try the brand, he obliged.

Throughout the summer, and potentially into the fall months, the group at Cabana brings in mixologists to create variations on the Caipirinha cocktail and offer straight samples for patrons to enjoy from a special table set up in the bar’s back garden.

The table display is like a typical bottle service presentation and is refreshed with a constant supply of mixers, fruit, ice and glassware, which the bar offers alongside Cabana’s provided spirit. Guests select their fruits and mixers and the mixologists create the drink, to avoid over-serving.

“It absolutely gives an added value and layer to the guests’ experience,” Levy explains. “We plan on continuing this occasionally for the summer and possibly beyond.”
