So many choices….


Sarah’s upcoming Cocktail Competition Calendar

It’s that time of year again….competition season!  This Sunday I will be participating in Speed-Rack LA, the search for the fastest (and most accurate) female bartender in Southern California.  I’ll be representing Jayne’s Gastropub and speedily crafting cocktails to raise money for breast cancer research.  Should you be in the Los Angeles area, tickets are $25 and the event will be held in the Roosevelt Hotel from 3pm-7pm.  If you would like to help me out with a little practice this week, I’ll have a printed list of all 50 classic cocktails I’ll be tested on behind the bar.  Feel free to bring a stopwatch!  Article in the Los Angeles Times here.

Also, Tuesday November 29th marks the second annual El Dorado Cocktail Competition, benefiting the MCASD.  Bartenders from Prohibition, Noble Experiment, El Dorado, Searsucker, amongst others (and yours truly!) will go head to head in front of a panel of judges.  If this event is anything like last year’s, it’s not to be missed!  Come cheer me on, have some drinks, and enter the raffles to win prizes and benefit one of my favorite local art museums.

Jaynes in the News: Bartender Sarah Ellis’ Citybeat Magazine feature.

We’re so proud of our gal Sarah Ellis behind the bar.  She has fast proven herself to be among the very top bartenders in city and has a well deserved feature in Citybeat Magazine.  Read about it here.   Oh, and she also plays a mean guitar with Ladyparts playing next Monday at Tin Can Alehouse!

$6 specialty cocktails Weds @JaynesGastropub featuring Bulleit Bourbon

It’s been some time since we tasted a small-batch Bourbon that really blew us away. Since we were re-introduced to Bulleit artisanal Bourbon earlier this year, we’ve been waiting for just the right moment to feature it @JaynesGastropub.

This week’s Southern Nights special (our famous fried chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens, and downhome corn bread) seemed like the perfect occasion.

Erik and Brandon will be making specialty cocktail all week using Bulleit Bourbon and tonight, like every Wednesday evening, all specialty cocktails are just $6.

So come on down and see why we love Bulleit Bourbon so much!

p.s. and don’t forget to bring your overalls and cowboy boots!

Happiest hour and classic cocktails mingle @JaynesGastropub 5-6:30

Since we began offering our guests cocktails back in the spring, we’ve expanded our specialty cocktail menu to include traditional and creative formulas that express our attitudes about food, spirits, and entertaining:

purity of ingredients, balance of flavors, and classic refinement.

Whether the Pimm’s Cup (a nod to Jaynes’ homeland Britain) and the Southside (an homage to Jon’s eastcoast roots) to the Hemingway (for our love of literature and the bon vivant lifestyle) and the Americano (European avante-garde in a glass, anyone?), we are thrilled to offer our patrons state-of-the-art mixology with the touch of class that sets Jaynes apart from the crowd.

Whether Hendrick’s gin or Basil-Hayden’s bourbon or Campano Antica Formula red vermouth, all of our ingredients are hand-selected by us for their quality and refinement (no run-of-the-mill hooch here!).

Right this way, your table’s waiting for you tonight @JaynesGastropub.

We hope to see you soon.

xo Jayne and Jon
