Where Rock Stars Sip

Blurry Bar

StewartCopelandThe Artist: Stewart Copeland, The Police

The location: Katsuya, Brentwood, CA

The order: “Their food is exotic—kind of nouvelle Japanese. I’m not sure Tequila and Japanese food is a standard combination, but I’m a fan of agave in Tequila form, so I’ll mix Chinaco with crab any day.”


SaraQuinThe Artist: Sara Quin, Tegan and Sara

The location: Maialino, New York City

The order: “I enjoyed the Penicillin Scotch cocktail. I researched what I’d need to make it myself, but the further I fell down the rabbit hole of mixology, the more depressed I became. So, I poured myself a Scotch—neat and in a water glass with dogs on it.”


The Artist: Jack Johnson

The location: Varanasi Restaurante, Santiago, Chile

The order: “The best spot in Santiago for good tunes, delicious food and amazing Chilean wines. Make sure to try the Coyam blend from Emiliana, one of the best organic wineries in Chile.”

Daniel KesslerThe Artist: Daniel Kessler, Interpol

The location: Mayahuel, New York City

The order: “I love saddling up to a comfortable bar seat and ordering a mezcal from the extensive list. Or, I might go for their Oaxaca Old Fashion if a cocktail is calling my name.”

Andy RourkeThe Artist: Andy Rourke, DJ, former bassist of The Smiths

The location: Passenger Bar, Brooklyn

The order: “Château Jouclary Sauvignon Blanc. I do like Chardonnay as well, but only unoaked.”

Mat KearneyThe Artist: Mat Kearney

The location: Pinewood Social, Nashville

The order: “They brought in a vintage bowling alley, so you can sip old-fashioneds while throwing strikes. We call it Instagram heaven—so many cool design details.”

Leslie FeistThe Artist: Leslie Feist, a k a Feist

The location: Bar Isabel, Toronto

The order: “The Baraganna cocktail, made with charred-pineapple- and jalapeño-infused Tequila and sage syrup, helps me escape Toronto’s winter chill with carefully structured heat.”
