The concept of Tonic grew from the bond between friends, a love for community, and a passion for wellness alchemy.   

 

We source our ingredients from North Carolina distilleries, breweries, cider mills, wineries, and farmers.  We love incorporating house-made syrups, tinctures, preserves, bitters and responsibly foraged and grown ingredients harvested  and crafted by folks across the Old North State.  

The parlor is located upstairs above Nautical Star Coffee & Staat's Bakery at 218 Middle Street in historic, downtown New Bern.   When the coffee shop is closed downstairs, find the backdoor...

TONIC is an APOTHECARY-ESQUE cocktail parlor curating boozy antidotes to alleviate a multitude of maladies.

MADE IN NC

localfarmersbooze-white-color.png

Buying booze made in NC has never been more exciting.  It's wild to realize that when you buy a drink from Tonic, or any other restuarant or bar that carries NC made booze, you're supporting a trickle down effect of imperative organizations.  Farmers keep farming, agriculture keeps evolving, education in those areas get a huge boost, and so do their economies...not to mention your hard earned money stays in our Old North State.   Our deep history of being the black sheep of bootlegging is going strong with innovative ways to keep spirits and medicinal products alive.  So thank you for your support.  That $9 cocktail can go a long way!
