Blackbird Chief Mixologist Lynn House Set To Leave In June; Heads to Bourbon Country
Well, here's a bombshell you didn't see coming: Blackbird's chief mixologist Lynn House is leaving her prestigious post on June 15.
The award-winning bartender, who has worked at the hot West Loop restaurant for more than three years, will join the Bardstown, Ky.,-based Heaven Hill Distilleries as the first-ever national brand ambassador for PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur (one of the company's brands).
House told 312DD over the weekend that she will continue to be based in Chicago, but her new duties of brand awareness and schmoozing with big wigs will take her all over the country.
There's no word yet on House's replacement at Blackbird, but we're certain the cocktails will continue to be outstanding in her absence. If you plan on checking her out before she leaves, it's highly recommended to make a reservation ASAP.
Congrats to Lynn House. Sounds like a well-deserved position for an extremely talented mixologist!
