This weeks feature is a spot I overheard a few people talking about, and I decided to check it out! Mix It Up (located in Virginia Beach, Virginia and in Suffolk, Virginia) is a bar unlike others around. When you walk in you are immediately greeted by a welcoming and helpful bartender who asks you about your beer preferences, and recommends accordingly. The best part though is that you get to taste your options before you dive in and pick one. It. Gets. Better. Tasting is UNLIMITED. Unlimited as in, you can taste every single one of their draft options to find the one that is perfect for you! I’m not a beer drinker at all, but I do love a good cider. They have great options for every pallet type. I HIGHLY recomend Larry’s Lemonade.
In the adjoining room next door, they have the Mix It Up store where you can drink AND shop! (Dream come true right?) They have a room filled with hundreds of different bottled beers and ciders that you can choose from to make your own 6-pack. They have a wine selection as well for those interested in that. In this room, they also sell a variety of drinks that can be used as mixers, and chasers, and prepacked drink making bundles with drink recipes inside. Both locations were strategically placed next to ABC stores so that all of your drinking needs are put together!
They have a food selection as well, and host different game nights, movie nights, and other events that they share on their Facebook page. They have an outdoor area that is their own personal beach! They filled the area with sand and have a few picnic tables and lounge chairs for everyone to enjoy. They also have the large size Jenga game outside which is an awesome game to play and entertain friends. Definitely recommend this spot for friends, family, and dates, of course ONLY for those over 21!
If you haven’t already, you HAVE to go to Mix It Up!
