🍸Cocktails Around the Globe! 🍸

Now that I'm legal to drink, it's fun to try new drinks and signature cocktails in cool spots. Here are the bars I've hit in five major cities!

I actually started off my 21st birthday celebration at Catch. The restaurant and bar is originally from New York, but everyone is loving the new LA location! It has one of the best rooftops in town and the drinks are all super fun and citrusy.

And, Delilah is where my 21st birthday party ended! The '20s art deco vibe of this place is so cool. They even have a dessert named after me: Kendall's Slutty Brownie! 😜 Plus, a lot of the drinks come with pretty pink flowers in them.

It's no secret that The Nice Guy is one of my favorite places in LA. It's the perfect mix of chill and party and I know there's always someone fun to hang out with. Drake has a special drink here, "the nOVOcaine," that has his Virginia Black whiskey in it and is served in a bronze owl.

The Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel is such an LA staple. All their classic cocktails come with a little anecdote on how they got their name, which is so fun to read. But really, when it comes to this place, come for the drinks but stay for the chocolate soufflé!

The Top of the Standard (literally the top of the Standard Hotel, lol) is one of the most beautiful spots in the city. Besides having amazing views in all directions, the architecture and décor here is beyond. Even though the real scene is at night, going here to watch the sunset is pretty amazing, too.

Below Acme restaurant is a converted rock 'n' roll club turned cocktail bar. It's a great place to go for pre-dinner drinks. It gets more lively on the later side with a DJ.

Part of Soho House, Ludlow House is located in a former gold-leaf factory on the Lower East Side. It's the perfect place to meet up with everyone and just have a chill spot in the city. The bar is cute and always buzzing with people.

Located in the Roxy Hotel in Tribeca, Paul's Cocktail Lounge is the quirkiest spot. The whole place has a slightly Hawaiian theme with hibiscus wallpaper and patterned uniforms designed by Chloe Sevigny. It's pretty small and loud but has the best music!

When I'm not sipping rosé on the beach in Miami, you know I'll be at Saxony Bar in the Faena Hotel. It has the most incredible atmosphere that feels like you just stepped into a party in "The Great Gatsby."

Bar Hemingway in the Hôtel Ritz Paris is such a classic. The place looks like an old-time sporting lodge and has a history you can just feel. It's a really magical place to sit and enjoy a drink while people-watching.

Les Bains has serious history in Paris: Over 130 years old, it has transformed from a luxury bathhouse into a famed club and hotel. It's the bar you have to go to in the city.

Silencio is private club created by film director David Lynch that opens its doors to non-members five nights a week. Consisting of a photo gallery, small movie theater, library, smoking room, two bars and a stage, it's the ultimate cultural experience.

Wanderlust is the most insane outdoor bar ever right along the Seine. During the summer, it turns into the biggest outdoor party ever. Definitely where I want to be on a warm night!

Punch Room in The London Edition (one of London's coolest hotels) is a super fun place. Their specialty is punch, of course, and is really yummy and easy to share with a big group. They also offer a boozy afternoon tea.

Blue Bar in the Berkeley Hotel is chic but still has a funky vibe. The menu is categorized in color ranging from least alcoholic (green) to potent (red), so you know what you're getting yourself into, haha.
