JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu is bringing you a taste of Sidecar’s signature concoctions for a weekend at Dashanzi – the two-day pop-up will offer connoisseurs and cocktail enthusiasts an opportunity to experience drinks crafted by the master bartender, Yangdup Lama himself.
With 25 years of experience in bartending, Lama shares his cocktail philosophy, “I have always believed in the fact since guests are the ultimate consumers of cocktails, they are the ones that drive us to do better, and to strive for more.”
Adds Lama, “The idea is to have a solid base in the know-how and technical skills and blend that nicely with a pleasing personality and voila! You have a great cocktail, served by a memorable bartender lending to an unforgettable experience and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to bring this philosophy, and with it some stellar cocktails to the guests at Dashanzi.”
His idea of a good bar is simple – the guest is the star and the bartender is the medium that makes them feel so.
“Dashanzi and Sidecar share the common philosophy of innovation and unique blends to offer our guests exquisite concoctions. With this collaborative pop-up, we invite the cocktail connoisseurs of Mumbai to experience the finest of Sidecar’s flavorsome creations alongside the famed Asian-style fare of Dashanzi”, says Dinesh Sathiyanathan, Director Food & Beverage, JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu.
