Drink slingers Jane Danger and Austin Henelly of the Lower East Side tiki inspired bar and restaurant, Mother of Pearl, are in studio for The Speakeasy this week with host Damon Boelte. Talking the paths that led each to becoming cocktail experts plus their take on the tiki bar and the importance of making their customers happy, Jane and Austin wax poetic on hospitality and the intent behind their drinks. This program was brought to you by Michter’s.
“What we love about tiki we’re taking that and putting it through the bizarre algorithm that is my brain and Jane’s brain, and it comes out as something totally different on the other end. It’s more tiki through the looking glass.”
–Austin Henelly on The Speakeasy
“Tiki needs to be as fun to make as it is to drink.”
–Jane Danger on The Speakeasy
