This is Merideth. She works at a bar in Venice Beach. Teaching and practicing yoga keeps her grounded and focused on what’s important in her life. Recently, while living in Japan, she taught English as a second language,  farming through the WWOOF program, and also hiked to the top of Mount Fuji. Currently, she is pursuing a degree in environmental leadership.

This is Ali. She tends bar at The Fox and Hounds in Studio City.  It’s an English pub and locals’ neighborhood bar. Ali has been there awhile and knows most of the people who come in. If you’re new, she’ll make you feel at home here.

Just a reminder: All these bartenders are recommended to me. So if you have a bartender you would like to suggest, you can leave her name and bar in the comments section. Cheers

No. 17

This is Jen. She worked at Sky Bar. She had a cool little place in Venice with this great yard so we shot there. I think the clothes a woman chooses to wear can sometimes reveal more about her than if she chose to wear nothing at all.
