Snake Oil Cocktail Company announces the grand opening of its newest venture, the exclusive food and beverage management of The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center. Working in partnership with the La Jolla Music Society, the San Diego-based event beverage catering and mixology experts will bring their event experience and cocktail prowess to this world-class music hall and event space.
The Conrad, as it is more informally called, is a 49,000 square foot, 78.5 million dollar state-of-the-art event facility that has been conceived and designed from the ground up. Located in the heart of The Village of La Jolla, the property is comprised of an acoustically exceptional 513 seat concert hall, a contemporary performance space, a central courtyard and entertaining area, as well as an elegant open air terrace. In addition to concert performances from A-list musical artists and classical performers, the space is perfectly equipped for hosting medium to large scale corporate events, galas and exclusive weddings.
“The Conrad represents a historic cultural achievement for San Diego and the vision for the space is nothing short of world-class. The La Jolla Music Society has been an incredible partner and we are excited to bring cutting-edge cocktails and an elevated concession experience to such an extraordinary space.” – Michael Esposito, Co-founder
During concerts in the Baker-Baum Concert Hall, guests will be able to take advantage of the concession service, open before and during performances. In addition to thematic craft cocktails and unique beverage experiences, the beverage offerings will include wine and champagne by the bottle, local craft beers, a curated list of fine spirits, and gourmet snacks, highlighting some of San Diego’s best artisans and confectionaries.
In the JAI, an intimate and stylish 2,000 square foot flexible performance space across the courtyard from the Baker-Baum Concert Hall, Snake Oil will offer modern bistro-style bites and full bar service with signature twists on classic cocktails. Patrons can enjoy seasonal selections from the craft cocktail menu or share a bottle of wine with an artisan cheese and charcuterie plate amongst friends.
Between the performance halls, you will find the Wu Tsai QRT.yrd and Belanich Terrace, an outdoor gathering space bordered by beautiful mature olive trees. Boasting an expansive 4,000 square feet, the courtyard is a beautiful outdoor area where guests can enjoy a craft cocktail or quick bite before or during a performance. On warm summer nights, Snake Oil will offer frozen cocktail options and introduce its latest cocktail innovation, Cocktail Graffiti, for select special events.
