Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping, “Liquor is quicker, but get me a single malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I’m the English president!” Be like Ol’ Winnie with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $35 for two cocktails and four small plates for two (up to a $78 value)
  • $65 for four cocktails and six small plates for four (up to a $130 value)
  • $30 for a mixology class (up to a $65 value)<p>

The dinner menu includes small plates such as mac ‘n’ cheese with acorn squash, sweet-potato gnocchi with sage butter, and steamed clams with bacon sausage. Cocktails include the Scofflaw, with rye, amaro, and grapefruit bitters, and the Clover Club, with gin, raspberry, lemon, and egg whites. During mixology classes, students craft three sample cocktails before using the techniques they learned to invent their own drinks. Winning cocktails stay on the Quench cocktail menu for one month. Classes take place every other Monday from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.


At Quench, Chef Ed Hardy and barman Matt Allred aim to live up to the hype stemming from the Favorite New Restaurant and Best Cocktail Program awards they earned from the Restaurant Association of Maryland. They, along with their team of chefs, go beyond simply making food and mixing drinks—they prepare artful dinner specialties and unique, out-of-the-box cocktails. Though their meal creations arise out of seemingly simple ingredients—local produce, house-ground meats—the team crafts wildly creative send-ups of typical pub fare in addition to traditional comfort foods. Short ribs are braised for days, bacon is cured in-house, and fresh ground lamb meatballs fill out the seasonal risotto with fresh local ramps. Quench also plates healthy fare such as edamame hummus served with local cucumbers and apples and a fresh and locally caught fish of the day, all complemented by inventive cocktails. The seasonal dessert menu of house-made ice cream sandwiches and rhubarb cobbler round out the dining experience.

The drinks, with clever names such as Sex in the Burbs and Django Juice, draw on a palette of blood-orange juice, house-made foams, and uniquely infused spirits. Mixology classes prepare students to delight party guests, and Quench also hosts events such as Saturday and Sunday brunches scored by live music and scratch-made weekday lunches.
