Did you know that before DRY Sparkling was sold in your favorite grocery stores it was only available in restaurants? DRY’s CEO and founder went from restaurant to restaurant, talking to chefs and selling DRY as the perfect non-alcoholic compliment to a great meal. Today, there are still tons of amazing places you can dine and hang while drinking a DRY Sparkling. Read on to discover ten of our faves.
Lola – Seattle, WA
Doughnuts and DRY Sparkling? Yes, please! When visiting DRY Sparkling’s hometown of Seattle, you must swing in to a Tom Douglas Restaurant. Lola is known for melding Greek-inspired cuisine with the fresh flavors of the Pacific Northwest, but we especially love their perfect doughnut holes paired with Rhubarb DRY (see above). Bonus: They serve DRY in a champagne flute!
The French Laundry – Napa, CA
Yup, you read that right. THE French Laundry carries DRY Sparkling. In fact, The French Laundry was one of the first restaurants outside of Seattle to pick up DRY. Next time you are lucky enough to enjoy a meal at this iconic Napa restaurant, we kindly ask that you invite us to enjoy a glass of DRY Sparkling with you.
Dante – New York, NY
Rated as one of the world’s 50 best bars, Dante should be on your list of places to visit in the Big Apple. No joke, last time we were there we saw queen-of-mixology Charlotte Voisey inside and Chloe Moretz hailing a cab outside. And they served a cucumber garnish in our Cucumber DRY glass, which is always a nice touch. Sip DRY on its own here or ask for the bartender to make you a refreshing mocktail or cocktail.
Estrella – Los Angeles, CA
For the full experience at West Hollywood’s Estrella Sunset, dine outside under the beautiful pendant lights and tip back a cold bottle of DRY Sparkling. Their globally-inspired menu compliments the bold flavors of Rhubarb DRY, creating delicious pairings for a meal to remember. Their menu changes often, but at one time it included the world’s most epic toast, pictured above.
The Chandelier – Las Vegas, NV
Searching for a fab mocktail while in Sin City? The Chandelier bar has you covered. Spanning a few floors of the Cosmopolitan hotel and surrounded by a massive chandelier, this bar is a must-see Las Vegas destination. Order the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club for a pink peppercorn, pickled strawberry, lychee and Lavender DRY Sparkling mocktail. Looking for something a little stronger? We asked the bartender to add gin to this floral drink.
Gary Danko – San Francisco, CA
If you want to get a little fancy the next time you’re in San Francisco, head to Gary Danko. While in town for the Winter Fancy Food Show, the DRY team recently enjoyed a memorable 4-course tasting meal here, paired with Lavender and Cucumber DRY Sparkling (above). We are so honored to continue to be a part of this famous establishment and we constantly seek reasons to visit. Dinner meeting, anyone?
Le Pigeon – Portland, OR
When in Portland, head to Le Pigeon. Their ever-evolving menu ensures that you experience some of the PNW’s freshest seasonal ingredients. We paired their beef cheek bourguignon with a bottle of lush Rhubarb DRY Sparkling. Pro tip: it’s a small space, so be sure to make a reservation in advance.
Dead Rabbit – New York, NY
Weird name, awesome bar. If you catch yourself in the city that never sleeps, we recommend heading to the The Dead Rabbit. Named the “World’s Best Bar” in 2016, their menu includes beer, (all the) whiskeys, and vintage cocktails with an Irish flair. Their story is also worth a read if you’re into things that are clever and fun.
The Other Side – Key West, FL
Headed to the southernmost point in the US? Then you better grab yourself a cocktail at the The Other Side. From whiskey and Vanilla DRY Sparkling to vodka and Lavender DRY Sparkling recipes, you’ll be sure to find something exciting and refreshing on the menu.
Leoda’s Pie Shop – Lahaina, Maui, HI
After a long day of surfing or snorkeling, Hawaiian coconut cream pie + Rhubarb DRY Sparkling is a well-deserved treat. Leoda’s in Maui will be sure to satisfy any vay-cay sweet tooth, but they also serve amazing burgers, salads, sandwiches, fried chicken and pot pies. Their beautiful space looks like it’s been blessed by Chip and Joanna, but the beach is just across the street, making it the perfect spot to dine-in or take your goods to-go.
