tarajosu | eta bar
highland park, california
Tarajosu infused his style with ETA, the hot new Brooklyn-inspired bar in Highland Park.
The artist focused on a statement piece near the entrance way and the ceiling of the bar itself. Two sets of gilded hands, both in prayer and outstretched, greet patrons and imbue a sense of welcoming and gratitude.
Beverages are enjoyed beneath three rays of coiled words in a style known “zen tangle”—and each word has a meaning to it. Whether the word holds meaning to the owners of the bar, or to Tarajosu himself, they range from an owner’s thesis to his children’s initials, and even include inspirational movie quotes.
It’s not easy to spot them all, enabling each ETA experience with the chance of a new discovery… in more ways than one. The bar strives to be known for its unique libations, a place for patrons to go to try something new. Upon visiting, a recommended cocktail is the Penultimate World, which includes mescal, cucumber puree, green chartreuse and lime.
ETA is open and located at: 5630 N. Figueroa Street in highland park, CAlifornia
