The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Oct 4, 2018

In this conversation with Shanna Farrell, some of the topics we discuss include:

  • The Creation of the book Bay Area Cocktails and how Shanna used her experience as a professional interviewer to learn from some of the most impressive names in the cocktail world, including Dale DeGroff and David Wondrich.
  • The early history of the cocktail renaissance in the bay area, and how a few sparks kindled the movement into a full-blown community.
  • Some thoughts on fern bars - yeah, that’s right, a fern bar is a thing. And we’ll tell you exactly what it is.
  • Notes on some of the most influential figures responsible for the cocktail Mecca that San Francisco has become.
  • Where to grab a drink with the creator of the Hanky Panky
  • And much, much more.

You can pick up Shanna’s book, Bay Area Cocktails, on Amazon and at independent booksellers in the Bay Area and elsewhere. And you can get in touch with her @shanna_farrell on Instagram and Twitter, and by visiting her website:
