Machine: Engineered Dining & Drink
Where we've featured it
If you want intricate, over-the-top cocktails, order from Machine. Their kits come with things like candy cages, little hammers (to break your caged drink out of cocktail jail), stemware, and all sorts of ingredients. And each kit makes about 12-16 cocktails.
The owners of Machine coordinate a hospitality meal program, giving out over 200 dinners to restaurant workers in need. They also donate and deliver meals to local hospitals for healthcare workers, as well as flower giveaways outside the restaurant.
Movie Pairing: Tank Girl (Netflix)
“Tank Girl combines two of my favorite movie things: a post-apocalyptic wasteland and awesome futuristic hair. And while Mad Max is the dystopian GOAT, during this current situation I’ll take brightly colored ass-kickings delivered by Lori Petty over the grim brooding of Furiosa anytime. Basically, it’s the feel-good post-apocalyptic movie you didn’t know you needed. And nothing goes better with the fun, ridiculous tone of this film than one of the slightly-silly cocktails from Machine (they come with candy cages and a little hammer), and pairing it with a giant bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.” -AK
When: Monday-Friday 4-6 pm
The Deal: 1/2 Priced Bottles of Wine & Select Cocktails
Despite the name, Machine Engineered Dining & Drink isn’t known for heavy metal music and industrial decor. Instead, thanks to the attached flower shop, Machine’s known for having beautiful floral arrangements and equally pretty cocktails. And during the week you can try a couple discounted drinks, and split (or not split) a bottle of 1/2 priced wine with a friend.
