Was at a private event at the new The Nolen, a new rooftop craft cocktail bar at the Marriott in the Gaslamp.
They have an interesting list of cocktails, some old standbys. These guys apparently take their craft seriously, from meticulously forming and splintering the ice, to stirring the mixtures, to using their own house-made syrups.
Tried several (thank you, Uber), and my favorite was probably the Vieux Carre.
Tried a selection of their food items as well. Mostly standard bar/HH grub, but the tots and jerk chicken were good.
Fire pit, stunning view of downtown and the harbor and cozy seats. Makes you almost want to go to the Gaslamp.
