First & Hope - Farmers Market Happy Hour Jeannine Denholm

A spread of fruits and vegetables highlights First & Hope's Farmers Market Thursdays happy hour.

New supper club First & Hope is kicking off the summer season with several unique cocktail concepts the restaurant hopes will attract both residents and the Downtown office set to make the climb up Bunker Hill.

From Tuesday to Friday, each happy hour offers a different theme. There's TV Dinner Tuesdays, Picnic and Beer Wednesday's, Farmers Market Thursdays and Fondue Friday's.

The most interactive of the four nights is definitely Thursday.

The entire bar is filled with fresh veggies, herbs and fruits all bought at a local farmers market. Your job is to fill up your little metal shopping cart, pick out a spirit and let the bartenders do their magic. Over the course of Happy Hour my bar mates' drinks ran the gamut between strawberry basil cocktails and cucumber chili martinis to a berry balsamic concoction. Each one, while different, was delicious.

Complimentary food is also offered in the front section of the bar, giving examples of the restaurant's southern comfort food menu.

The happy hours all run from 5 - 7pm, and will run for at least the next several weeks.
