Tableside Cocktail Service

Back on the menu nationwide.

Tableside cocktail service used to exist only in swanky restaurants. Now, even casual watering holes put bartenders behind a rolling cart to customize cocktails.

Sunday brunch-goers at Aja, inside Dana Hotel in Chicago, can order a Mimosa or a Bloody Mary from a roving cart.

The Drawing Room in Chicago pours signature cocktails tableside, incorporating ice cubes created using a horizontal evaporator ice-making system.

At Suite & Tender, inside Setai San Diego, drinks are made tableside, including Painkiller (a British Virgin Islands favorite) and Grace (Cointreau,Champagne and three berries). suiteandtender. com

Going a step above tableside, bartenders at Fraiche (Culver City and Santa Monica) prepare cocktails on tabletops with as much attention as they would in plating a course.

Vintage carts are mere accessories in the fabulously restored Art Deco-and-chandelier ambiance at The Edison in Los Angeles, tucked into the basement of the city’s first private power plant. Handcrafted cocktails are prepared by waitresses using what’s stocked on the cart.
