A Kitchen Confidential for the cocktail profession, Unvarnished is a fly-on-the-wall narrative peek at the joys, pains, and peculiarities of life "behind the stick." When it opened a decade ago, the acclaimed Los Angeles speakeasy The Varnish--owned, designed, and managed by award-winning cocktail aficionado Eric Alperin--quickly became the stylish standard bearer for modern bars. Unvarnished is a candid, voice-driven, no-holds-barred look at the workings of a bar, and the foundation of The Varnish's success: attention to hospitality and an abiding belief in the nobility of service. Alperin and veteran bartender and writer Deborah Stoll push back against the prevailing conceit that working in the service industry is something people do because they failed at another career. They offer fascinating meditations on ice as the bartender's flame; the good, the bad, and the sad parts of vice; one's duty to their community as a local; the obsessive, compulsive deliberations of building a bar (size matters); lessons from Sasha Petraske--Eric's late partner, mentor, and the forefather of the modern day classic cocktail renaissance--and the top ten reasons not to date a bartender. At the book's center are the 100 recipes a young Jedi bartender must know before their first shift at The Varnish, along with examples of building drinks by the round, how to Mr. Potato Head cocktails, and what questions to ask when crafting a Bartender's Choice. A sexy, gritty, honest look at the glamour-less work of a glamorous job, written with the intimate honesty of The Tender Bar, the debauched inside view of Kitchen Confidential, and the social commentary of Waiter Rant, Unvarnished will take its place among these classics of the service set.

A hybrid of genres, Bar Book uses cocktails as a jumping off point in a collage of voices that collectively explore the ethics, economics, craft and consequences of service. The narrator, a barmaid, grapples with irreconcilable differences in her work and personal life. At work, she's torn between taking orders and keeping order. The bar business demands she be eager to please while it holds her responsible for maintaining control of a potentially chaotic, even dangerous environment. She must be both master and servant to earn her living, yet the two roles are wary bedfellows. In addition to poems, Bar Book multi-tasks its way through a range of means by which we organize information: a balance sheet, a Cosmo-style quiz, forms, an FAQ and bullet points - everything and the kitchen sink! - make appearances here in this archeology of modern love, this sozzled scrap book.

The lush, agreeably-out-of-style cocktails who take the stage in Bar Book . . . [pull] the reader through this artful, wry, and unlikely book’s tales of hearts on the rocks and hearts surviving.”—Mark Doty
