Classic Hour at The Wallace

Last weekend Edible was lucky enough to experience "Classic Hour," which we have to say is pretty happy, at The Wallace in DT Culver City.  The two year old locavore restaurant has established itself as the harbinger of innovative and classy concoctions on a rather chain filled Main Street. 

TheWallace's Classic Hour runs from 5:30 to 7:00 every day in the bar (noting it ends promptly at 7pm for those who run on the tardy side of life).  And with price offerings of Mixed Drinks at $9 and Wines By The Glass and Draught Beers at $6, the Wallace is the go-to location for that pre-night-out-on-the-town cocktail.

So Classic we became!  Miss Kelly Grace Thomas sampled the Tommy Margarita a combination of Tequila, Fresh Lime Juice, and Agave Nectar.  “Tastes like a sour lime skittle that’s making a pucker pucker sound at you,” she noted.  “A tart tease!”  

Kelly then reached for my Bourbon Buck, swirled around the amalgamation of Bourbon, Fresh Lemon, and Ginger Beer balanced with Virgo like perfection in her mouth, and continued “I like this place, they have integrity to their drinks.” 

Their non-Classic cocktail menu refers to their blends as “Tipples,” separated into three defining categories: Citrusy, Effervescent, and Cocktails (though technically the other two categories are also cocktails…  So for our second round we coupled their Acapulco Gold, a wuzzle of Mescal Ilegal Joven, Ancho Reyes, Lime, Fresh Cilantro, and Rainbow Salt ($13).  It’s a drink that tastes serious, even if it doesn’t look serious, filling your mouth with curves that rival the Big Sur coastline. 

We then dismounted from the bar and continued on our journey of a night-out-on-the-town, happy with our experience of the world of Wallace Tipples, classic and non-classic. 
This is how a Saturday night begins!
