San Luis Obispo has always been a haven for food and drink enthusiasts. This month, the city will be treated to a delightful new addition – Rambling Spirits’ Bar & Grill, promising a blend of impeccable taste, community spirit, and Californian adventure!
Husband-and-wife duo Jon Carpenter and Ariette Armella, who are no strangers to the Central Coast distilling scene, have brought their latest labor of love to 114 Tank Farm Road. “While the restaurant’s inception brings us immense joy, it’s the essence of community that drives our spirit,” says Ariette. The couple believes in rebuilding the fabric of human connection, which seems to have frayed in recent times. Rambling Spirits aims to serve as a bridge, inviting people to engage, converse, and revel in the warmth of companionship.
The couple’s combined expertise is the beating heart behind this establishment. Jon’s decades in beverage creation is complemented beautifully by Ariette’s background in communications and photography. Their shared dream of creating a haven of elevated gastronomy and cocktails previously materialized in the form of the Rambling Spirits Workshop within the SLO Public Market. Now, their vision expands with the Bar & Grill.
Headlining the culinary team is the talented Chef Brenen Bonetti, a familiar name to many for his Grinning Bear food truck and his extensive 15-year journey through California’s culinary landscape. Chef Brenen passionately highlights the Central Coast’s ingredients, ensuring the menu is a culinary voyage through the region’s flavors. He pledges, “We will be paying homage to every element of our county – from the fiery grills, seafood of our coasts, to the deep aromas of our smoker.”
For those with a penchant for spirits, the new Bar & Grill is a dream come true. With an array of handcrafted cocktails showcasing Rambling Spirits’ Workshop favorites, as well as a curated wine list and local craft beers, it’s bound to be a hit among beverage aficionados.
However, it’s not just about food and drink. The ambiance of the Bar & Grill is a tribute to both the industrious people of San Luis Obispo and the breathtaking beauty of California’s Central Coast. The space is meticulously designed, allowing guests to choose between the cozy indoor bar, main floor, heated patio, or the playful mezzanine that offers a view of the working distillery. And for those who fancy a bit of a game with their meal, an outdoor shuffleboard court awaits.
Embodying the spirit of California’s adventurous allure, Rambling Spirits captures the essence of Central Coast’s scenic wonders in every bottle. Their commitment to perfection is evident in every sip. Discover the world of Rambling Spirits at the Workshop in SLO Public Market or the newly opened Bar & Grill at the Bonetti Ranch campus.
