The restaurant reflects those feelings with all sorts of memory-triggering pop culture visuals like a mural featuring cartoon favorites like;
Sayegh spoke with L.A. Taco about his experience creating Nostalgia.
“Part of the past for me was gravity bongs, it was terpenes, it was cannabis, it was cartoons, movies, T.V. and music, and all these things.”
The goal was to have people reminisce in a way that they truly love, that brings them joy.”
Ah yes, gravity bongs. Nostalgia has become so popular because of its unique approach to infusing cocktails.
Sayegh uses plant terpenes, naturally occurring organic compounds that express individual flavors and aromas.
He infuses cocktails with cannabis-derived terpenes and also infuses mocktails with CBD. However, he doesn’t infuse beverages with terpenes in the back, hidden from guests.
He takes out the renowned Stündenglass Gravity Infuser, a hose, and a glass dome to infuse beverages tableside.
One of the most popular cocktails is Apples to Oranges, a children’s game that’s been remade into a lovely smoked beverage.
For this particular beverage, Nostalgia uses applewood chips and ignites them in the Gravity Infuser’s bowl. The smoke is then trapped underneath a glass dome with the cocktail inside.
Luxurious cocktails, CBD-infused mocktails, and childhood memories are the name of the game for Nostalgia Bar & Lounge.
Sayegh invites guests far and wide to experience his renowned terpene-infused beverages while reliving cherished childhood memories.
