Shaking It Up On The Hill

Earlier this year when The Sweetest Things opened in Mt. Adams; the residents and visitors alike welcomed the independently owned café to Hatch Street. Offering breakfast all day, delicious homemade desserts, lunch wraps and soups to accompany their wide variety of
coffees and teas; it was warmly received. Patrons liked what they had to offer including free Wi-Fi and an array
of artwork throughout.

But some of the patrons wanted something more. Mt. Adams has always offered a vibrant nightlife with crowded dance floors and pulsating music; which tends to attract a younger crowd. Heather Turner decided to take her quaint café and expand it into the chic martini bar which so many of her patrons told her they would like to see on the hill. A place you could kick back and have a glass of wine or the beverage of your choice; a place where the music is well chosen and low enough so you can still carry on a conversation easily.

Heather listened and even went beyond everyone’s expectations, they have succeeded in creating a place that could be appreciated by the younger patrons but cherished by the more sophisticated clients. The bar area with its exposed brick and brown walls creates the perfect ambience to enjoy one of the signature martini cocktails made with fresh squeezed juices and they change weekly. The wine list consists of choice selections; beer and mixed drinks are also available.

Don’t get the wrong idea; the Abbey is laid-back not asleep. They offer live music on the weekends in the main area right off of the bar so you can still carry on a conversation. So, even if you like your martini stirred, things will still be shaking at the Abbey in Mt. Adams.
