La Belle Vie named one of the top 25 bars in the country
It's nice to get the notice, when the man running the bar program literally wrote the book on fine cocktails. Johnny Michaels's cocktail-shaking star continues to rise. This week Men's Fitness magazine named La Belle Vie one of the 25 best bars in America.
Michaels's cocktail menu at La Belle Vie is always filled with expertly built flavors and the most imaginative names. The Most Interesting Man in the World is a perfectly tart take on a margarita with an unexpected twist. A salt-rimmed glass is filled with tequila, blood orange mix, and a dash of Garham Marsala, topped with a thin slice of lime and a little wink to those Dos Equis commercials.
