Each month, Coco and Bar Moga showcase a new Japanese spirit (whisky, shochu, gin, etc.).
On July 25th, August 1st and August 8th, the bar is featuring a Japanese whisky duo from Akashi, Japan's smallest whisky distillery. Guests can opt for the classic, easy-to-drink Akashi White Oak, or fruity Akashi Ume made with plums. During Coco's Spirit, both whiskies are available by the glass ($8; on the rocks, neat or highball), in an Old Fashioned ($12) or as a tasting flight ($8).
The “Coco’s Spirit” series is led by Kayoko “Coco” Seo, a trained jazz musician and Japanese beverage expert who refined her knowledge of Japanese spirits under the tutelage of the prolific Shingo Gokan of Angel’s Share. The epitome of a true moga, or “modern woman,” Coco is a certified shochu advisor and respected industry expert. She is thrilled to share her extensive spirits knowledge and tasting + pairing tips with guests in a casual, interactive setting.
Both drinks will be served with complimentary vegetable chips (lotus root, purple yam, potato, truffle salt), with the option to add a yellowtail carpaccio small plate for $9.
