While Kensington Quarters is best known for its whole animal butchery, its general manager and beverage director is Tim Kweeder, one of the city’s top wine experts (we said as much in 2015’s Best of Philly and last month’s “The New Faces of Philly Wine”).

And on Saturday, July 22nd, he’ll be pouring some extra special bottles and taking over KQ’s upstairs event space, transforming it into a pop-up wine bar.

There was the news that two of their butchers (Heather Thomason and Cecile May) had broken off to form their own butcher shop, Primal Supply. Then word came down that the space was undergoing some restructuring (the closure of the retail butcher’s counter in favor of gaining about a dozen more seats for the restaurant), which was a good idea since the restaurant part of the combination butcher shop / bar / restaurant and classroom had been busy since day one and could occasionally feel a little cramped.

And now, some more news. Starting this Sunday, KQ is beginning a series of cocktail pop-ups in the upstairs loft space. The first one, called “Evergreen,” will be bringing together Palmer Marinelli (ex of the Diving Horse and Pub & Kitchen) and Amy Hartranft (of Wm. Mulherin’s Sons) for a night of $10 cocktails and small plates, all revolving around a central theme.
