Posted by

What could be better than L.A.’s top bartenders all mixing cocktails in one place amidst a backdrop of art, culture and live entertainment?

Truthfully? Not much.


That said, Art Beyond The Glass returns this Sunday for its fourth annual event showcasing the best mixologists in the city while raising money for one of our most treasured public radio stations, KCRW.

In addition to the delicious drinks, there will be a bevy of art, photography, spoken word performances and dance exhibitions to keep your senses engaged while you partake in the amazing array of libations.

It all goes down at General Lee’s Bar in Chinatown starting at 3:00pm on Sunday, June 28.

Check the full lineup of bartenders and entertainers listed after the jump.
