Even before drinkers enter Kevin Diedrich’s venue, Pacific Cocktail Haven, they have a good idea of the kind of quality experience they’re in for.
But four years ago, when Kevin Diedrich was in the process of re-imagining the existing neighbourhood bar that would become PCH, a bunch of regulars were asking why he was ruining their favourite venue. He says it was like getting punched in the stomach, over and over again.
On this week’s Living Proof podcast, Kevin shares how a focus on “warm welcomes and fond farewells” has now seen PCH become the Best American Cocktail Bar, in the same year he was named the country’s best bartender.
