Bar Centro - Beverly Hills, CA - 5 Golden Spoons
We were staying at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills and dropped over to the adjoined Bar Centro for martinis. The ambiance is incredible. An opulent and moody atmosphere reminiscent of an old supper club but with contemporary touches and finishes. We sat at the rich black glass bar with an amber lit glowing wall behind shelves of exotic liquors. We were quickly greeted by our bartender, Josh, who was quite the mixologist. He prepared our drinks with style and flair that entertained by was not at all overdone or pretentious. Splashes of liquid nitrogen that cooled our glasses that he adorned with lemon peels that he crafted into swan like origami while we watched. One of the best bartenders we've ever encountered. We also enjoyed the decadent dessert bar with a plethora of exotic treats that were fun to accompany our martinis. Bar Centro is a must visit experience for any cocktail enthusiast. Spectacular on all levels.
