    Compère Lapin’s cocktail maven Abigail Gullo has earned raves and accolades for her progressive and forward-thinking mixology approach that complements Chef Nina Compton’s robust dishes, while also packing a punch on its own. As a true student of the craft, Gullo takes pride in her vast knowledge of spirits and flavors, injecting history and stories into every sip, leaving visitors thirsty for more. Now cocktail enthusiasts can soak up Gullo’s expertise with “Happy Mondays” – her weekly tasting and cocktail class held at the Compère Lapin’s bar each Monday at 4PM.

    According to Gullo, a frequent contributor to Vice and The Today Show who earned nods at the 2018 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards as finalist for “American Bartender of the Year” and “Best American Hotel Bar,” “I am excited to educate people on the art of the cocktail – how it’s made, what inspired it and the ingredients behind it. It’s going to be a laid back, fun and easy way to taste and learn.”

    The complimentary tasting and class includes a cocktail demonstration by Gullo or one of her visiting guest bartenders, as well as a tasting of the base spirit used in each drink. Guests can enjoy the cocktail of the week for only $6, available throughout Happy Hour. August schedule follows:
