Liberty Call Distilling Plans $1M ExpansionEat + Drink Liberty Call Distilling to open second distillery with restaurant in Barrio Logan in Spring 2019
Congrats to Liberty Call Distilling, who has announced plans for its second location, an expanded concept that will include both a distillery and restaurant with fare from farm-to-table chef, Miguel Valdez, to open in Barrio Logan in Spring 2019.
Liberty Call Distilling Kitchen will encompass nearly 3,000 indoor square feet and a 400-square-foot patio designed by Hurkes Harris Design Associates, who also designed The Local and OB Surf Lodge.
The designs call for an open floor plan with a lounge-like ambiance that will showcase a working distillery through a glass partition, food via counter service and cocktails available from the bar, a large roll-up door will open to a patio featuring high top-style communal dining, and seating for approximately 60 guests.
Executive Chef Miguel Valdez, who gained acclaim for his farm-to-table fare while at The Red Door in Mission Hills, grew up near the future location and will design the menu and elements of the layout.
Valdez is designing a small yet diverse lunch and dinner menu that will align with what the Liberty Call Distilling founder, Bill Rogers, calls “California tapas”:
- Rum Pickled Strawberry Salad
- Smoked Glazed Lamb
- The signature Whiskey Burger
Arriving simultaneously to this announcement are Liberty Call Distilling’s plans to expand its original and highly successful Spring Valley location by 2,500 square feet, following a lease signed this month, as well as newly hired distiller Mat Brady, formerly at BNS Brewing & Distilling Co.
In addition to overseeing spirits, Brady will play a key role in the growth of the distillery’s first location, designing everything from the ground up.
Great to see local businesses thriving!
See you there!
