Without knowing more than the somewhat vague title of the show, this scene clearly wasn't what the audience had mentally prepared for.
They’ll take sips from one another’s glass, throwing the risk of cooties into the wind, swap drinks, exchange names and for at least the time that they are sat there, become friends.
Across the bar strangers passionately converse with one another over a set of customized, nameless drinks he and his team built to suit the customer's tastes.
It was a surreal evening of stories and booze that astutely combined the history and craft of cocktails, theatrical narrative, and superb drinks.
Propped along the bar like limber, sag-stringed puppets were a bulbous chested white bunny, a shredded, virile angel, and a luchador.
Rob and his trippy cast of mute assistants drew the show to a close with a heartfelt anecdote about his father.
