If you’re down for the spoils of a giant Monkey Shoulder mixing truck—a cement mixing truck that’s been transformed into a massive, functional cocktail mixer—The Factory Bar is the place to be this Wed., June 1. The bar, located at 12517 San Pablo Ave. in Richmond, is open Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., with its patio space available until 10 p.m.
Monkey Shoulder, a producer of Scotch, will park its mixing truck in front of The Factory Bar just in time for its Whiskey Wednesday (4-11 p.m.), and will feature “special cocktails created around this delicious blended Scotch,” according to proprietor Marcus Hibser. “It will definitely be a sight to see!”
Aside from the whiskey cocktails courtesy of Monkey Shoulder’s mixing truck, Norphun’s Food Truck, offering Indian/Tibetan cuisine, is scheduled to be on hand serving up their eats from 5 p.m. to 11:55 p.m. that night.
For those who haven’t been to The Factory Bar, Hibser sums up its philosophy as being “one of Richmond pride and community,” where, inside the bar, patrons “will see lots of Richmond memorabilia celebrating Richmond’s past” and will find a cocktail menu that changes seasonally.
