Owls Club is reopening with a new cocktail menu & extended patio

After a temporary closure, the downtown cocktail bar Owls Club is reopening its 2,500-square-foot space at the former Brings Funeral Home at 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 4.

During the recent closure, the eclectic drinking spot on Scott Avenue has been spending time to make sure everything’s in tip-top shape and equipped to provide enough space for a socially distanced experience.

Bryan Eichhorst, who recently opened Soif Wine Shop and manages the bar at Penca, has been working hard with Ciaran Wiese — the founding barkeep at 47 Scott and Scott & Co. — and putting the staff through rigorous education and training.

In addition to ensuring everyone’s safety, there’s a pretty sweet patio setup ready to keep you comfy with one of the new cocktails available on the menu. Owls Club has plenty of fire pits, too, in order to keep your fingers warm.

A couple of the cocktails you’ll find on the menu are the Tin Lizzy — a cocktail featuring gin, ruby port, genepy, honey, and seltzer — and the Burro Brava and its blanco tequila, mezcal, ginger, lime, mint, absinthe, and seltzer.

They’ve also got a rotating wine and beer selection, with Happy Hour itching to kick off from 5 – 7 p.m. every Tuesday – Sunday.

Owls Club is located at 236 S. Scott Ave. For more information, visit owlsclubwest.com.
