You know I adore all things evil and wicked. And cocktails!
“WICKED," Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, has worked its magic on critics and audiences alike. Austin Craig, head bartender at Bambara, a Kimpton restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City, will delight dining guests with a new roster of "wicked good" signature cocktails when they join Bambara for a pre-theatre meal for the nine week run of “WICKED” from July 9 through August 24. For Sunday matinees at 1 p.m., Bambara's new weekend brunch is a great precursor to the show. Bambara will also open early on Sunday evenings at 5 p.m. so guests can make it to the 6:30 p.m. curtain call.
"Many guests love dining with us pre-theatre and we wanted to surprise them by offering a line of specialty cocktails just for the show," said Guy Wheelwright, Bambara’s general manager. "They are wickedly good and are guaranteed to help get people in a theatrical mood!"
The “Vault” is offering six different “WICKED”-inspired specialty drinks during the show’s production run from July 9 through August 24, including:
