Wilko Is Adding a Cocktail Bar

Posted By on Tue, Aug 16, 2011 at 11:45 AM

Wilko, the restaurant down by the UA that Rita Connelly seemed to enjoy when she reviewed it last week, is adding a cocktail bar that could be serving drinks as early as this weekend.

Jonathan Zucchi, general manager for the restaurant, says the renovations that include installing the cocktail bar are almost complete. Cocktails should be available this weekend, and the full cocktail program will be in place by the following weekend.

Zucchi says the restaurant has worked closely with the folks down at the Red Room to shape the program. If you’ve been to the Red Room, you understand what a smart move that was. They really focus on quality, and it shows in both the consistency and the quality of the drinks made there.

Wilko’s cocktails will focus on classic recipes, although Zucchi says they might play with infusing their own liquors and making their own bitters as well.
