CWS Bar + Kitchen is now open in Lake Worth, and the new neighborhood spot is celebrating all weekend long.
The three-in-one venue—beer garden, cocktail lounge, and morning coffee shop—has a jam-packed schedule of grand opening events now through Sunday, May 22, including a barbecue night, brunch and more.
The concept comes to Palm Beach County from 3-J Hospitality, which owns music venue Revolution Live, outdoor party spot America’s Backyard, and speakeasy-style drinking den Bar Stache—all in Fort Lauderdale.
CWS stands for Charles William Stache, the fictional proprietor behind the venue, who the real owners also like to say opened their 1920s drinking den of the same surname.
In addition to serving morning coffee from Panther Coffee, CWS offers two unique drinking and dining experiences: a craft beer garden, aptly called the Garden, and an indoor scratch kitchen called the Den.
The grassy Garden patio features communal tables, bleachers, and interactive space for outdoor games, plus an expansive TV wall for viewing sporting events. Almost 30 craft beers are on draft (not to mention the canned and bottled beer selection), and guests outside can order from a menu of classic beer garden eats, from Bavarian pretzels to sausages.
Indoors, the Den offers a fireplace and leather furniture. Guests lounging inside can enjoy classic or signature cocktails and peruse the extensive whiskey and wine list.
CWS launched its grand opening weekend with a Taste of New Orleans event on Thursday, May 19, and the celebration will continue with the following:
- Friday, May 20, 7 p.m. – Ole! Tacos & Tequila
- Saturday, May 21, 7 p.m. – All American BBQ
- Sunday, May 22, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. – Toast & Jam Brunch Party
After the festivities conclude this weekend, CWS will kick off its regular hours Tuesday, May 23–it’s closed on Mondays—with Panther coffee served from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The outdoor Garden opens at 4 p.m., and the indoor Den opens at 5 p.m. Dinner reservations will be available on OpenTable.
