Negroni Week would have happened in June, celebrating the classic cocktail (equal parts gin, Campari, sweet vermouth) while donating to the charities that participating bars chose. But due to COVID-19, that didn’t happen, so Negroni Week is currently underway virtually. Campari is hosting an online fundraiser here, but you can also join in locally now through September 20.
Big Bar/Alcove (Los Feliz)
Big Bar’s always got some kind of clever cocktail special going on and this week is no exception. They’ve got two Negroni specials and their charity this year is Black Lives Matter Los Angeles. They also carry Party Beer’s BLM Golden Ale, the proceeds from which also go to BLMLA. For Negroni Week, choose between:
Negroni Special 1: A Sipmith Negroni and a Big Bar Burger for $25. Available via outdoor dining or for takeout/delivery.
Negroni Special 2: The Boo Radler cocktail, available via outdoor dining. Or, get the Boo for Two to-go, which comes with a keepsake martini bitter bottle and two servings of the Boo Radler base, a can of Steigl Grapefruit Radler, and a lime.
The Loving Cup’s Gaby Mlynarczyk offers a canned sparkling Negroni + Coke all week long. Available at Winsome in Playa Vista (@eatwinsome). Proceeds benefit No Us Without You.
