For the first time ever, Shawn Litlicker, the bar operations director of one of the hottest restaurants in Los Angeles, Republique, is in town this week and will be introducing new cocktails to the Wild Flour groups’s bar menu starting with our weekly Retro Night event this Friday, November 16, 9pm onwards at Wild Flour Restaurant Rockwell.
Republique is Wild Flour’s (literally) sister restaurant based out of LA, owned by Wild Flour’s co-owners and renowned Chefs Margarita Lorenzana-Manzke and Walter Manzke (sister and brother-in-law of Wild Flour’s co-owner and president, Ms. Ana Lorenzana de Ocampo). Republique is so popular in LA that it has been graced by the likes of Beyoncé, Kanye West, and Michelle Obama. Shawn is the genius behind the bar operations of all of the restaurants owned by the Manzkes (some of the very best in LA!), including Republique, Petty Cash Taqueria, and Sari-Sari Store (which partly inspired the Filipino rice bowls at our very own Little Flour).
In an effort to further highlight our delicious dinner menu and extensive wine and liquor selection (and show that Wild Flour is more than the brunch-leaning “Café + Bakery” that it has become known for), Wild Flour Restaurant in 8 Rockwell has been holding weekly Retro Night events every Friday since August in which our restaurant by day transforms into a lively bar by night, as we dim the lights, live DJs play throwback classics from the 70s, 80s, 90s and early 2000s, and we clear the dance floor for guests to get down and enjoy (complete with a disco ball)! We also have Happy Hour promos on select beers (buy 1 beer, get the 2nd 50% off) and cocktails (buy 2 cocktails for Php500) during these events.
These weekly events have been very successful as the only place in the Rockwell neighborhood to experience a laidback yet festive atmosphere like this that harkens back to the vibe of the old days (together with Wild Flour’s signature dinner dishes and drinks), and we decided to feature Shawn of Republique and his masterful new concoctions this Friday to further spice up our Retro Nights. This week, we have spin doctor DJ Gerard Henson (formerly of STI– a huge DJ collective in the 80s) and industry veteran DJ Raulin Cayado playing vintage hits all night long.
As with our other events, entance is absolutely free! Call 850-5503 / 09177053329 for any inquiries or reservations. RSVP through our official Facebook event page is at this link: https://www.facebook.com/events/295795024479446
