A creative new venue combining artisan food, craft beer and cocktails, live music and entertainment, and family-friendly activities which has opened in the heart of Downtown Santa Cruz is getting more creative! Abbott Square Market, supported by the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH) and located at Front and Cooper Streets, is designed to be the food and cultural center of the town. Now, a connection has been established between the present and the past. Nearby Evergreen Cemetery – open to the public and managed by the MAH – is a scenic, tranquil spot where early pioneers, Civil War veterans, and Chinese immigrants were laid to rest. Pairing well with the forested hillsides, historic gravesites, and heritage trees, the Front & Cooper bar at Abbott Square now features cocktails which pay homage to this notable site. Created by world champion mixologist Kate Gerwin, the Evergreen Cocktail program features creatively-named libations using local ingredients – including Mutari chocolate. Part of every purchase of one of these “spirited” beverages will benefit the revitalization of the cemetery.
