Rare Booze and Cheap Eats at 694 Wine & Spirits

That's the (Artisanal) Spirit

694 wine & spirits!


694 Wine & Spirits is looking for thirsty bodies. Must appreciate small-batch spirits, simple cocktails, craft beer, and artisanal snacks.

If you’re as bubbly as Italian-imported Imper Ale, sweet as Lazzaroni Amaretto (brewed straight from amaretti cookies), fruit-forward as Goose Island Madame Rose, and will go nuts for Dumante pistachio liqueur, the heat is on.

Can swap pomegranate molasses for grenadine without thinking twice. Shaking your thang to nightly DJ beats is a plus. As comfortable on an outdoor patio as you are in a cushy booth — or better yet, chilling at the bar.

Likes: Picking herbs and tomatoes from the rooftop garden, secret monthly afternoon dance parties (noon-10 p.m.), peanut butter and jelly flights (starting in summer), corn whiskey, and potato vodka.

Dislikes: Complicated cocktail menus, generic liquor, picky eaters, and douche bags.
