A Cause Near & Dear // Louis Salgar Fund

Louis Salgar Foundation, Nicole Salgar

If you’ve lived in Miami in the past 4 years you’ve probably had Louis make you a cocktail. A phenomenal cocktail. Unfortunately, the greats seem to be destined for just that, greater things. Louis’ life was taken suddenly this past June. But if we can take something beautiful out of something so ugly, it’s that he left as a legend. As a bartender he willingly shared all of his knowledge with everyone around him, leaving a legacy of cocktail bartenders in the Miami community. That is something to be very, very proud of. His sister Nicole has been working her little booty off to share his spirit and memories with everyone around here as well as raise money to help provide capital for young creatives in the Miami area. She’s also been doing some pretty incredible things for the cocktail community down here as well. This girl never stops. Just pure badassness all of the time. Above is a portrait that she illustrated of her brother. Check out her other work on her website. And read Louie’s story here.
