Local residents and hotel guests seeking the next exclusive adult experience in Orange County, will want to check out two new “secret” cocktail lounges at Irvine Marriott. Garrett Schott, Director of Food and Beverage, notes the hotel now features a re-imagined Y.N.K. and a new venue, The Butchershop.
For those who like to be the first to try new spots and hang out where the masses are NOT, The Butchershop should be at the top of their list. It’s really not advertised or promoted and you wouldn’t know it is at the hotel. You have to inquire for its location and a reservation is strongly recommended to ensure you are granted access. The Butchershop is actually tucked away in a small area of the hotel’s kitchen and since the average room temperature is a cool 62 degrees, guests are given blankets while they sit at a horseshoe-shaped bar or on the white leather sofa and sip adult beverages and small bites with an amazing mixture of flavors and scents.
Signature cocktails include the Da Cannon, Mezca-Cillen, Coffee + Cigarettes, and Baby Mama Fizz while the menu items designed to pair with the cocktails include Steak Tartare with Garlic Crostini, Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps, Mojito Lamb Chops, a Chefs Charcuterie Board, and Brûlée Bananas Foster.
The Butchershop is open Friday and Saturday from 6 pm to midnight. For reservations, call 949.254.5713.
