THE BLOCK off biltmore has a great menu of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. We’ve got your favorite cocktails and mocktails, plus a great variety of vegan beers, wine, and spirits…..many of which are eco-friendly (i.e. distilled in solar and wind-powered distilleries). We also have buchi, locally crafted Kombucha tea, and Unity Vibration Kombucha beer on tap. Ask nightly about drink specials!
Also – did you know that every drink you purchase at THE BLOCK off biltmore helps to support the YMI Cultural Center? Ask us how when you come in.
And remember there is FREE parking a block away after 5 pm during the week (all day Sat & Sun) at the municipal lot located at Spruce and Marjorie beside the police station.
