In an era long gone, when I was in high school, my friends and I made midnight treks to the Highland Park Village Theatre many a weekend to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show. In fact, for a time, this theatre held the record for consecutive showings of the film. Things have changed a bit...
Enough with the melancholy - this Marquee Grill deal is pretty sweet. We'll look at more of the cool restaurant digs in future - tonight we imbibe.
We dropped by late on Friday night, during their soft opening, to find mixologist - and Speakeasy author - Jason Kosmas (Marquee Executive Beverage Director) at the top of the stairs leading to Marquee's sexy second floor bar and balcony.
The guys mixed us up some goods. ^ Here is the Distinguished Gentleman From Kentucky: Makers 46, Benedictine, Peychaud's & Peach Bitters, and Seasonal Fruits.
^ The Oxacha Sour: Illegal Mezcal, Lime Juice, Egg Whites, Angostura Bitters, grated Cinnamon & Nutmeg.
^ The view from the Marquee balcony - literally atop the theatre marquee. Highland Park Village plans a three-story European fountain out front - and a clock tower to boot.
We dug the place, already a game changer for nightlife in the tony 'hood - next time, we dine!
