What We're Drinking



With the James Bond movie Spectre being released today, no time could be better to drink Bollinger. The most suave spy in the world has been sipping on Bollinger since Moonraker in 1979. While we can’t all drive a fully loaded, customized machine gun having Aston Martin, we certainly can chill down a bottle of Bolli! The 2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne ($109) is as good as Champagne gets; all barrel fermented and full of masculine, Pinot Noir power and high class elegance. We even have a few bottles of the limited 2009 Bollinger "James Bond 007" Brut Champagne ($195) in stock for the diehard fan of Bond & Champagne!

Champagne Extravaganza Comes to Hollywood

Photo courtesy of Champagne Philippe Gonet.If you go to just one wine event all year, it should be the upcoming Champagne Tent Event at K&L Hollywood. A more lounge-y version of our already-sold-out event in San Francisco, this year's Champagne extravaganza will undoubtedly be our best yet. This year's line-up includes nearly 100 exceptional bubblies, from non-vintage Bollinger to 2002 Dom Perignon and Cristal to 1988 Veuve-Clicquot "Rare" Vintage Champagne, plus tasty treats from Cube Marketplace. But what really makes this tasting extraordinary is that, in addition to the dozens of Grand Marque Champagnes being poured, a number of the artisanal grower/producers exclusive to K&L will be flying in to pour and talk about their own wines

Ardbeg & OC Choppers at K&L Hollywood

Thursday, September 23rd from 4-7 p.m. It's Ardbeg Chopper Night at K&L Hollywood!  

Whoever said Whisky and motorcycles don't go together?  Well, normally they don't (at least not at the same time), but for once they do!  If you haven't heard already, OC Choppers (from the hit show American Chopper) and Ardbeg Distillery have teamed up to create two totally unique "choppers," to commemorate the successful rebirth of one of Port Ellen's finest distilleries.
