Seven Grand DTLA Maker’s Mark Annual 3rd of July Party!

June 28th, 2013 — 5:08pm

This coming Wednesday, July 3rd, we will be hosting our Annual Maker’s Mark Party! This will feature $5 Maker’s Mark Drink Specials, all-night-long, and live music with The Midnight Blues band at 10pm. Andrew and I are working on some other surprises as well, so come down and start celebrating your Independence a day early!

Present your paid-up Whiskey Society Membership card at the bar, and the first shot saluting Freedom is on us!

We open at 5pm, and this event is open to the public, so invite your friends and come on down! You can RSVP on the link below, just so we have a general head count and know what to plan for:

For more information on the Seven Grand Whiskey Society, hit the link beneath my signature. Memberships can be purchased at the bar, dues are $120 a year, and allow you to bring a guest to any event.

Our friends in the L.A. Scotch Club are having their yearly “Peatin’ Meetin’” this weekend, a celebration of the smokiest whiskies in the world, and I heard they still have some tickets left:

Luke and I worked it last year, and had a blast. To be clear, THIS IS NOT A SEVEN GRAND SPONSORED EVENT. But, Dustin and Luke will be in attendance, serving up some Peaty cocktails, and you know they roll.

We hope to see you on Wednesday. Happy Independence Day from all of us at Seven Grand!

Downtown After Dark: A Quick History of Local Nightlife, 6/24/13 – Los Angeles Downtown News

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - For those who hung out in Downtown Los Angeles in the 1990s, some common sights in 2013 are mindboggling. I’m talking about people on a Friday or Saturday night standing in line to get into places like Seven Grand or The Edison.

This is Downtown: Are people really waiting 20 minutes or longer to enter a bar or club so they can pay $12 for a drink and then hit on someone who probably won’t go home with them?

Read the rest here and see what Before and After Cedd Moses was like!
