On Sunday, January 14th, Elite Yelpers were invited to a snazzy Soiree at Second Story Liquor Bar in Old Town Scottsdale. Guests were treated to an amazing evening full of craft cocktails, light bites, and good times. Elites were greeted with a smile and walked up the stairs (yes, to the second story) to a gorgeous room with a sparkling chandelier front and center, glittering lights on the balcony, and a really impressive bar.
Throughout the evening, Elites indulged in a dreamy selection of craft cocktails including The Black Old Fashioned (Jim Beam Black Whiskey, lemon peel, Angostura Bitters, and sugar), The Golden State of Mind (Lairds Applejack, Bulleit Rye, lemon juice, spiced tea honey, and toasted rosemary), The #FemmeFatale (Tito’s Vodka, Hibiscus Liqueur, Orgeat, blood orange soda, and lemon juice), and last but certainly not least, the French 75 (Sip Smith London Dry Gin, Veuve De Vernay, sugar, and lemon juice). The #FemmeFatale was definitely an Elite favorite! This gorgeous pink bubbly drink was everywhere, social media included! All of the cocktails were fresh and fantastic.
As Elites sipped on their cocktails and mingled the night away, the wonderful culinary team at Second Story whipped up delicious bites consisting of Pork Belly Sliders, WTF Biscuits, Falafel Bites, and the most sensational Spicy Tuna bites. Saying Elites were in foodie heaven would be an understatement.
Throughout the evening, Second Story ran an Instagram contest for great prizes like $100 gift cards and whiskey barrels so that winners can age their own at home! The contest was centered around #WTFBiscuits and the #FemmeFatale cocktail. Elites had so much fun getting the perfect shot.
It was certainly a 5-star evening to remember. A HUGE thank you to Tommy and the talented team at Second Story Liquor Bar for opening up on a Sunday (just for us!) and treating Elites like royalty! As always, thank you to Eric Castanos for capturing this snazzy affair. Relive this fabulous evening by reading the reviews and viewing the photos.
