The team has been looking forward to presenting this take on the sometimes monthly punch and music event, and is excited to see it come to life. It will focus primarily on tiki punches with more tropical-oriented spirits, new faces in the lineup of guest bartenders, and a new sound for guests to enjoy.
Guests can look forward to enjoying punches from the following guest bartenders:
Doug Atwell, Rye (Baltimore)
Tyler Hudgens, The Dabney
Eddie Kim, Bar Otsukare
Michael Vincent Barton, Jack Rose
