 Here’s peek inside Plymouth’s soon-to-open craft cocktails lounge

The exterior sign has been completed for Highline Inspired Spirits.

Vacant since 2021, the historic, high-profile property at 330 Main Street in downtown Plymouth (formerly Wiltse’s Pharmacy) is just weeks away from experiencing a spirited rebirth.

A representative of Highline Inspired Spirits confirmed to SocialHouseNews.com that the much-anticipated grand opening of the first-of-its-kind business in DTP is expected to happen in early-May.

Highline owner and CEO Christi Lower, who owns the original Highline in Dexter, explained in June of 2023 to the Plymouth City Commission that Highline is a high-end craft cocktail lounge and tasting room that will offer a variety of fun and educational experiences, including a class labeled “Whiskey 101”.

Lower added during the public hearing 10 months ago that her company has reached agreements with at least 10 licensed food catering companies that will provide substantive food offerings throughout the business’s hours of operation, which are tentatively set for 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Brought back to its 1893 glory

The interior of the Plymouth Highline promises to be eye-catching as contractors have removed layers of decades-old drywall to expose the original brick that the property featured when it was built.

In addition to always-available pre-packaged food options, Highline will offer themed meal events; for instance, Thai food on Thursdays, sushi on Fridays and Sunday brunch and barbecue.

“We are seeking to create a craft cocktail lounge and tasting room … to provide an opportunity for patrons to peek behind the curtain to the traditional spirits industry, participate in cocktail classes, whiskey blending classes and spirts master classes,” the business plan explains.

“We are not a bar. We are only serving spirits that we produce. Therefore, we are not serving Jack Daniels or Grey Goose.

“We would like to produce a high-end approachable neighborhood atmosphere where the community and visitors leave experiencing  all that Plymouth and Highline have to offer.”

Place for variety of fun-filled events

Lower said the business will be a prime location for adult parties — from birthdays to business bond-building events.

Andy Winnie, the property’s longtime owner, said he has completed an extensive restoration of the building’s interior.

“We cleaned up the interior brick walls and exposed its original hardwood floors,” he said. “We brought it back to its original 1893 glory.”

SocialHouseNews.com will provides updates as to the official grand opening of Highline Inspired Spirits as soon as details are revealed.
