about Bar Sopra:

Lost Property owner Rhino Wiliams has created a lovely bar focused on gin cocktails. Located above Blackship, Bar Sopra is steeped in history. This building was the center of all Doors activity from 1968 to 1972 and the location that The Doors recorded the entire LA Woman album. 



1. Welcome cocktail + appetizers served 7:00-7:30pm.

2. This will be a small meeting of only 22 members due to room capacity.

3. The tasting will take place outdoors, under a covered balcony.​​

parking + transportation:

I will do some research for the best parking solutions and post soon. We recommend taking public transportation or ride sharing to the event.

Big thanks to Travis Tidwell and Rhino Wiliams for making this event happen.
