HOURS

Absinthe Brasserie & Bar will be going into hibernation until we receive news on the easing of restrictions for outdoor dining. We will then figure out the best way and time to safely resume service. In the meantime, we hope you can support other members of The Absinthe Group: Akna, Arbor, Arlequin Wine Merchant, and Bellota. They will all be reopening for takeout and delivery beginning Wednesday, January 6th.
