--a Valentines-themed pop-up bar--is coming to MOTHER
. Sparks start flying Sunday, February 10th until the knot is tied on Friday, February 15th. Activating the top floor of the Edgewood bar, the pop-up will feature a large-scale installation, titled Luminescence, by Elise Williams. Attendees will experience a glowing room filled with illuminated plumes of paper sculptures that blossom and burst from the walls. Experienced mixologists will handcraft each delicious cocktail while DJs play jazz, world, and dance music. MOTHER is hosting several activations throughout the week, including an Artist Market on Sunday, nightly guest bartenders, a live scoring film event, and a closing Art Party with live free jazz and electronic music.
Artist Elise Williams worked with MOTHER in designing the drink program. “The installations I create are all about fun and whimsy, for myself and the viewers. I love to bring different approaches to my work through sound and lighting. I am especially excited for this installation because I am also including taste, thanks to a collaboration with MOTHER on these special cocktails.” The cocktail program includes refreshing botanical flavors, bubbly infused with lush colors, and sweetly spiced herbals. Local artist Iman Person has contributed a one-of-a-kind rose and coriander tincture for a cocktail as well. “In this collaboration, we drew from the color and texture profiles of Elise’s work as well as themes of love, comfort, and joy,” said MOTHER Bar Manager David Stedman. Swoon Bar will also feature a small snack program, including popcorn tossed in dried herbs, spiced nuts, and bread service. MOTHER’s full menu of tacos, wings, and burgers will be available at the downstairs bar as well.
Swoon Bar welcomes couples, loners, the proudly single, the polyamorous, friend groups and anyone else over the age of 21!
