A rotating cocktail series
We're pleased to introduce you to Mavericks - a rotating guest bartender series.
Each season, we invite a notable bar talent to create a full cocktail menu that will be served for three months. Expect highly creative libations and menu themes: anything goes. Our ambition is to provide a place for high-profile cocktail industry “Mavericks” to play, experiment and explore their ideas.
This Fall, we are delighted to be collaborating with SF's own cocktail icon Brian MacGregor, whose menu will introduce you to a lesser-known, multi-faceted cast of characters, all responsible for helping to forge the unique spirit of San Francisco.
In addition, Lord George will donate 50¢ of every Mavericks cocktail sold to the talent's charity of choice. For his season, Brian has chosen Baykeeper, an organization that has worked to protect and preserve the San Francisco Bay for the past 25 years.
