Setting up at the Casa Lobby Lounge March 17 through Spring 2013, this rotating lineup of live music and daily drink specials comes on the heels of Managing Chef Sven Mede’s rollout of all-new menus at Catch restaurant and the Casa Lobby Lounge. Each day of the week boasts its own recurring beverage special, including preferred pricing on select premium wines, craft beers, top-shelf spirits, and more. Guests may complement their beverage of choice with Mede’s seasonal small plates menu, featuring fresh sushi rolls and sashimi, charcuterie platters, oysters on the half shell, and more.
Also new is the lounge’s lineup of live music performances, which range from KCRW DJ Raul Camposspinning every Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., to returning favorites the Leftover Cuties turning out their signature vintage jazz-pop on select dates in March and May. Live music performances will rotate regularly, featuring a mix of DJs, jazz trios, renditions of classic soul legends, bossa nova, and more. Visit the Casa Lobby Lounge website for the most up-to-date schedule and performance times.
