“Dry” Bar the Wave of the Future?

A new “pop up” bar has opened monthly in Ann Arbor, Michigan. For those who don’t know a “pop up” is a business that can be moved easily or is for a set day and time. Darius Fisher had to explain that to me.

This “pop up” has a unique idea, Brillig Dry Bar serves no alcohol.

Brillig Dry Bar is the brain-child of chef Nic Simms, who is a recovering alcoholic for twenty years. Ms. Sims, who runs the dry bar out of her husbands coffee shop about once a month, wanted to create a fun, inviting atmosphere without the pressure to consume alcoholic beverages. 

Some of the drinks made by Brillig are: Vernors Cranberry Sour, Brooklyn Egg Cream, and Pomegranate- Rosemary Soda. Ms. Simms first night of operation was a rousing success and hope to keep having “Dry Bar” nights about once a month. Brillig Dry Bar is a unique alcohol free option for a fun night out with friends. 

Ms. Simms did say that she received a little backlash from having a non- alcoholic bar, but insists she is not anti- alcohol.
