Craft Cocktails Make Their Way To The Corner

When you go out to eat with friends and family, one of the most natural things to do is ask the server or bartender if they have a cocktail list. You scour the menu looking for your favorite spirit—vodka, gin, rum, whiskey, tequila—and hope a concoction catches your eye. Perhaps it's a pairing with a liqueur you’ve never heard of, or it’s the most obnoxious and photo-worthy beverage in the building. 

However you prefer to enjoy your drinks—sitting, standing, singing karaoke, or playing a board gameThe Corner in Ferndale is sure to have exactly what you’re looking for.
