Looking for something fun this Sunday? Look no further! Now in its sixth year, Art Beyond the Glass is L.A.’s premier cocktail culture festival, featuring more than 100 top bartenders making cocktails and showcasing their artistry, from painting and sculpture to photography, live music and more!

ABTG VI is taking place at Los Globos, the landmark nightclub located on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Silver Lake. Opened as L.A.’s first American Legion hall in the 1930s, Los Globos is a massive two-story venue with multiple rooms and state-of-the-art sound and lighting.

The event will be raising funds for The Moth, a Peabody Award-winning nonprofit organization that celebrates the ability of stories to honor the diversity and commonality of human experience, and to satisfy a vital human need for connection. Marking its 20th anniversary in June, The Moth presents open mic storytelling competitions in Los Angeles and cities around the world.
