Michael B. Jordan reveals he co-owns a bar that serves 'Black Panther'-themed cocktails
Michael B. Jordan reveals that he co-owns a bar that serves "Black Panther" themed cocktails in New York City, and it has been all the rave.
While Michael B. Jordan played everyone's favorite villain, Eric Killmonger, on the "Black Panther" movie, he is actually a pretty chill guy who is a fan of pretty good rum.
He's turned this liking into a business, owning an NYC rum bar called "Las' Lap," which serves drinks inspired by the famous Marvel movie.
The Other Side to Michael B. Jordan
Amid his busy schedule hosting a fun 32nd birthday party during Grammys weekend which was attended by the Carters, Drake, and other Hollywood A-listers, and his upcoming Oscars appearance, the actor hosted an exclusive mixology lab in partnership with Bacardi in his bar.
Just a day before Valentine's Day, he hosted a cocktail-making class out of Bacardi Premium Rum, which the actor has been actively promoting.
The mixology class comes after he debuted "The Angel's Share," a series of short films that were co-directed by Jordan and share the story about how Bacardi's aged rums are made.
For that class, he made a series of drinks out of the Bacardi Premium Rum Portfolio, and featured a "Black Panther" inspired concoction called "The King Cuatro."
Michael B. Jordan after "Black Panther"
The impact that the movie "Black Panther" has on Michael B. Jordan is enormous and has brought him many opportunities to further his influence and his craft.
However, this did not come easy for him as he reportedly needed to get therapy after portraying the role because it took a toll on his mental health.
The 32-year-old actor revealed that he had to seek professional health after they finished filming, as he said all the negativity he needed to become an effective villain took a toll on him.
During an interview he had with Oprah Winfrey for her "Super Sowl Conversations" TV special, he opened up about the whole ordeal.
"I spent a lot of time alone. I figured Erik [Killmonger], his childhood growing up was pretty lonely. He didn't have a lot of people he could talk to about this place called Wakanda that didn't exist."
According to the actor, he went to great lengths for this character because he wanted to give his character justice. He wanted to truly embrace the character, so he embodied him even off-camera.
"When it was all over, I think just being in that kind of mind state … it caught up with me. It was a little tough for me at first. Readjusting to people caring about me, getting that love that I shut out. I shut out love, I didn't want love. I wanted to be in this lonely place as long as I could."
Now, Michael is making the most out of every day, living life as an actor and a part-time bartender at his bar.
