Cincy Chic: What is HomeMakers Bar?
Catherine Manabat, Co-Founder of HomeMakers Bar: HomeMakers Bar is the slightly retro, mostly modern embodiment of everyone’s favorite house party. Our cocktail program features twists on retro classics that highlight low-proof and unique spirits. We’ll feature vinyl DJ’s for nights of revelry and dancing. We hope to collaborate with friends and neighbors in our community to create one-of-kind events.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?
Manabat: HomeMakers was inspired by the idea that everyone who steps into our bar should feel at home. We wanted to create a place where people can have fun, are met with warmth and hospitality. This bar is meant to inspire curiosity. We want our guests to surprise themselves. HomeMakers was created to celebrate the makers and shakers of our community, who strive to defy convention.
Cincy Chic: Who’s behind it?
Manabat: Julia Petiprin co-founder of Sundry & Vice, and Catherine Manabat.
Cincy Chic: What makes HomeMakers Bar unique?
Manabat: Every space is unique because of the hard working people who make up the team there. We are so fortunate to have a team of quirky, spunky, and sincere go-getters. We think the fun and approach-ability of our space will make people feel welcome to try new things. We truly want to highlight the unconventional and what makes a bar a space for the community.
