Southern Food and Beverage Museum

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum is a unique and comfortable space, reminding you of both your mother’s kitchen and a country juke joint. In the glow of vintage neon signs, sip cocktails, eat and mingle, while trying out turn of the century kitchen tools. In this “movable feast,” chefs will cook local favorites and bartenders will pour delicious cocktails in front of the Museum of the American Cocktail exhibit. Join us for this special experience!
