Aptos, California, July 10th 2023 – The wait is over! Venus Spirits is reopening Cocktails & Kitchen Beachside this week. Walk-ins are accepted but reservations are recommended.

Closed since November, the Venus’ consulted with Stripe Design Services, Bill Kempf, and Garrett Manning to design and renovate the space. The restaurant will have elements that reflect the westside location while also bringing a sense of coastal influence. The full bar will feature cocktails made with Venus Spirits’ locally distilled whiskey, gin, vodka, rum and agave spirits, which will also be available for purchase by the bottle. The restaurant will also offer a selection of local wines and beers.

The Aptos restaurant was awarded “best new restaurant” in the Good Times Best of Santa Cruz 2023 awards, and the menu will bring back the lobster roll and oysters, along with new dishes like grilled maitake and vegan poke. You will be able to find classic Venus favorites, with a dessert menu that features a Venus espresso martini and house baked pie.

Venus Cocktails & Kitchen Beachside will be open Wednesday – Sunday, 5pm to 9pm. Details & reservaKons can be found at
