It’s been a while since I updated you all about our bar, The Golden Girl Rum Club. Too long! But first, just in case any of you hadn’t heard a little over a year ago, Trey and I partnered with some friends and opened a bar in our hometown of Springfield, MO. You can see a tour of the bar here. During the course of the first year, about one million little things happened. 🙂 So, I just thought I’d share a few random highlights with you all.
Rogan and the team at GG have dreamed up and served SOOO many delicious drinks this year. I mean, whoa. If you like to see pretty cocktails and maybe learn a little about rum here and there too, you should totally follow us on Instagram. Also, sometime in the near future, Rogan is going to share a few cocktail recipes with us—which I am super excited about!
We also won a few local awards—our city has been kind to us! We won Best New Bar from Ozarks Best and Best Cocktail Menu from 417 Magazine.
One big change is this past year we added a patio to the front of the bar, so there’s lots of extra seating/standing space during the warm weather months. And there have been lots of small changes inside as well, like Rogan’s ever growing collection of (personal) tiki mugs behind the bar and our green felt board menu that features more rotating items.
And speaking of the menu, we recently had a new one printed and it’s SO pretty. It was designed by Frank Norton and Rogan and I just love the little illustrations for the drinks and food. I keep telling them we should turn them into enamel pins, right?!
Over the past year, I’ve met a few of you as you visited the bar during road trips across the country or visiting friends or family and it’s been so cool. Thank you SO much for stopping in! It’s my absolute favorite spot in town, but obviously I’m biased. Just a little. 🙂 I hope I see more of you there in the years to come. Cheers! xo. Emma
P.S. Not pictured (because it wasn’t in yet) is our new slushie machines!!!! I cannot wait to see what Rogan comes up with for those. I LOVE a great frozen drink in the summer, so I am beyond excited. They should be up and going ASAP, so any Springfield locals, go check it out.
