Opening in March: C.W.S. Craft Cocktails and Kitchen

This venue is from restaurateurs Jeff John and Brian Freed, who also have three other places in South Florida: Revolution Live, America’s Backyard and Stache 1920’s Drinking Den. From coffee and pastries in the morning to drinks after work, there will be food and a large assortment of spirits with an emphasis on bourbons, whiskeys and ryes.
