Nectar Wine and Beer Kendall Yards
We need your help to bring a craft wine and beer specialty shop to Kendall Yards in Spokane. Enjoy life with friends, drink happy!
BRINGING CRAFT WINE AND BEER TO KENDALL YARDS
Every neighborhood needs a wine and beer specialty shop and every neighborhood needs a place to meet friends and enjoy a glass of great wine or craft beer. Nectar Craft Wine and Beer in Kendall Yards combines both. With my wine experience and industry connections, I will scour the wine and beer world to bring specialty wines and craft beers for you to taste, enjoy and buy. Need a wine for your upcoming party, walk on in and grab something special without paying restaurant prices. Want to relax after work with friends? Enjoy 30+ wines by the glass and 12 craft beer on tap (with other unique offerings by the bottle).
In addition to the wine and beer, Nectar Craft Wine and Beer will have a specialty cheese, meat and chocolate supplying you with some tasty cheese for your party and specialty charcuterie or cocoa treats that will make your mouth water.
KENDALL YARDS URBAN BY NATURE
Kendall Yards is a new hip urban community under development near Downtown Spokane. The development is transforming an old unused piece of land that used to be a rail yard depot into a mixed use of apartments, condos, single family homes, office and commercial space. At its completion the development will be home to 1000+ residents, restaurants, retail shops, grocery stores, parks, access to the Centennial Trail (30+ miles of bike and walking path) all along the Spokane River, walking distance to River Front Park, Downtown Shopping, and the beautiful Spokane Falls.
JOIN THE CLUB
Want us to pick out our favorite wines or growler of beer for you each month? Join our exclusive Kendall Yard Club and we will pick wine for you every month (or a growler of beer) and store it in your very own Kendall Cubicle. Stop by and pick it up whenever you are ready. You can join the club at 1, 2 or 3 bottles per month depending on your level of consumption. For the beer lovers, join our growler of the month club for something fun every month.
WINE, CHEESE, MEAT, CHOCOLATE CLASSES
Nectar Craft Wine and Beer will host monthly wine pairing classes with our Sommelier in Training Benjamin Simons. Ben will uncover the nuances of various wine regions, grape varieties and will impress even the most knowledgeable oenophile with his skills. Guests will enjoy a sampling of our cheese, meat and chocolate boards as well.
TASTINGS AND MEET THE WINERIES AND BREW MASTERS
Ready to taste something new? Join us for our weekly tastings and winery or brew master meet and greet. Enjoy tastings of unique wines, small wineries, beers and hard to find stuff. This is a great way to try something new before you leave with a case of your favorites!
NIBBLES, BITES AND FOOD
It would be hard to imagine having wine or beer without something to nibble on. Nectar Craft Wine and Beer will have a fun appetizer menu with a mix of items provided by our partner caterer, in house prepped items and our friends that are in the space next door, Veraci Pizza. There are 4 great restaurants in Kendall Yards. We want to be your place for wine and small bites. Enjoy the amazing chefs around us! Hungry while you imbibe? We will have you covered.
THE SPACE...OH THE SPACE
We are partnering with one of the regions premier restaurant design and architecture firms, HDG. Josh and Armando have an eye for design and we want Nectar Craft Wine and Beer to be one of the most amazing spaces in all of Spokane. With your help, we will create a beautiful and timeless space that takes advantage of the beautiful downtown Spokane view and the amazing patio.
5 years ago, when I had the vision for Nectar, I envisioned being in Kendall Yards. Through the economic downturn and the success of our first venture into the winery tasting room concept, all of this was put on hold until now. The time is right for us to help in the renewal of a once barren area of Spokane and to be the wine and beer specialty shop for this urban by nature area in Kendall Yards. Many of you have been with us as a reader of our blog, followed us on twitter and have supported us with your presence in our first location. YOU are invited along for this journey as well.
There are many great rewards to the right. Some of them offer you unique opportunities, private parties, VIP experiences and more. Be a supporter and help us bring this dream to reality. Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to enjoying a glass of wine or beer with you soon. Enjoy life with friends, drink happy!
Risks and challenges
Risks, ahhhhh, with out risks there are no rewards right? Having been down the path of entrepreneurial start up three different times now, I have a handle on some of the risks to expect, as well as knowing to be prepared for some out of the blue surprises.
Timing and budget are the bigger risks in a project like this. Permits don't always come in fast enough. Materials are not always in stock. Delays to construction can happen. Some ideas have to be scrapped due to cost over runs.
We hired HDG for a reason. They are experienced in restaurant / bar design and launch. They will help us mitigate and navigate the risks and challenges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
