Raising the Bar Liquors
Living up to its name, Raising the Bar Liquors isn't content to be just a place where people buy vodka, stock up on mix and match craft beers, or grab a bottle of wine. To realize its lofty ideals, the store enlists a crack team of wine aficionados, self-professed beer snobs, and about 30 professional mixologists. If asked, one of these experts might recommend a margarita recipe, suggest a food pairing, or reveal some tricks of the bartending trade. Raising the Bar Liquors also hosts classes in topics such as vodka and whiskey, during which instructors cover everything from the first steps of the distilling process to the last steps of making an impressive cocktail.
