Bar Tulia in Naples makes its name with true craft cocktails
April 7, 2018
While there are a number of bars in Southwest Florida that “craft” cocktails, very few do it like Bar Tulia on Fifth Avenue South in Naples; this is a cocktail destination. An intimate gastro pub with talented bartenders who pay attention to detail, even taking precious extra seconds on a crowded night to pick out the perfect cut of mint or basil for a garnish.
Creating a true craft cocktail bar was a dream of partner and chef Vincenzo Betulia, according to bar manager Christie Hawley, who says, “Chef’s vision is carried out every day with great passion by our staff.”
The bar top is lined with house-made syrups and tinctures, fresh herbs and fruits, giving bartenders like Stanley Worrell inspiration.
“We have palates, and we use them,” he says. “It’s small enough that we can customize drinks for guests at the 13 bar seats.”
