Dogwood Southern Table and Bar is mixing things up this summer.

You may already know about the coolness and deliciousness of Dogwood (if you don’t, go find out.) They’re obviously killin’ the food game but also have a unique and tasty cocktail program created by “barkeep extraordinaire” Brian ‘The Hammer’ Lorusso.

To shed some light on Brian’s mad skills and the overall flourishing cocktail culture in North Carolina, Dogwood is hosting a guest barkeep series in which bartenders from nearby restaurants will join Brian behind the bar for the night.

Details are below. If you can’t make one of these, keep checking in with the folks at Dogwood. Other guest barkeep dates are in the works.

Dogwood Southern Bar and Table, 4905 Ashley Park Lane, Suite D

How does it work?

You’ll be served a 4- to 5-course dinner full of interesting and flavorful dishes created by Chef Scott Hollingsworth. Each course will be paired with a cocktail prepared by Brian and the guest barkeep, and they’ll be interacting with guests as they mix drinks.

So… what are we eating and drinking?

Patience, grasshopper. Menus will be released one week prior to each event.

And how much does each event cost?
