Morning cakies! A few months ago Jillian got to dine at an intimate new event space in downtown LA that we know you guys will love. Apartment A is a whimsical dining room and intimate private event space located in LA’s Arts District. The Cocktail Academy teamed up with Taste of Pace to host her monthly supper club there. Each month, Pace hosts a dinner in a different home or venue in LA which involves a 3-course meal, cocktails, and music. Jillian’s had the pleasure of enjoying a supper club at Taste of Pace’s loft apartment in the past, and was delighted to learn she had joined forces with The Cocktail Academy for this month’s dinner:

Jillian’s story…

As soon as I entered the space my senses were delighted to find handcrafted cocktails paired with scrumptious bites. While sipping on my cocktail, I had the chance to take in the ambiance; The space is small and intimate with a speakeasy feel. It would be the perfect venue for dinner party with friends, rehearsal dinner or small reception. Celery & Celadon provided lovely florals, hung from the ceiling with cute blue bottles and tons of pretty bougainvillea. She is such a delight to chat with. We may or may not have had a few cocktail and become best friends, ha! She just moved her business from NY, so LA brides-to-be, you’ve gotta check out her work!

As the night went on and food and drinks kept flowing, the Élan Artists bands entertained us with vintage jazz tunes from Ground Control, Vintage Confidential, and Cartwright. I seriously felt like I had stepped back in time and unlocked the secret key to one of the hippest dinner clubs. It was a night not to forget. That’s how all dinner parties should feel, right?

From Taste of PaceThe purpose of the supper club is to take the local seasonal bounties and create new and exciting dishes that expand my boundaries as a chef and artist while perfecting different techniques. Within the framework of supper club consists three courses and a complimentary cocktail to awaken the palate. In addition, the atmosphere is sweetened with live performances from local musicians.
