Cork's Patio is Reopening with a streetery.

𝐅𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐁𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐂𝐨𝐫𝐤...⁣
𝐏𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨 𝐑𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐚 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐲⁣

We took some time off in August to do some thinking - How could we create an outdoor dining experience for our guests that was both memorable and true to Cork. In addition to our extended patio, we will now have new streetery sitting so that you can experience Cork Wine Bar and people watch right on 14th Street. We've also re-vamped the store to welcome so that we can welcome guests into Cork Market to shop (2 at a time). For regulars, some all-time favorites are coming back for a fall viewing to be paired with all-new new wines - shhh and Diane's been in the kitchen herself coming up with some new dishes.⁣

But most important is the safety of our guests so we've focused on ensuring that our dining & retail practices comply with local and federal guidelines and have made adjustments for your safety and that of our team.⁣

So all that's left to say really is Welcome you Back to Cork. We've Missed You!⁣
