Leslie Kirchhoff is an ice cube innovator, cocktail consultant, photographer and DJ, whose multi-disciplinary magic extends from the pages of Vogue to packed dancefloors across the globe and beyond. Having sampled some of the world’s most innovative mixology in her travels as a DJ, Leslie noticed a distinct lack of creative attention being paid to the cocktail’s arguable centerpiece – the ice cube. What began as a series of arty ice experiments in her tiny New York kitchen grew into a passionate affair with all things frozen and a thriving business at the intersection of art, science and entertaining.
Since launching Disco Cubes in 2018 with a profile in The New York Times, Leslie has become an increasingly in-demand collaborator behind the camera, turntables, and now bar, for brands like Louis Vuitton, Dior, Cartier, and Moët Chandon.
Disco Cubes is based in Los Angeles, California.
Leslie's ice and cocktail book, Disco Cube Cocktails, was released on April 7, 2020 by Chronicle Books.
