Craft beers are featured all over town. The Power & Light District’s The Kill Devil Club puts the focus on rum.

Now a new Westport venue plans to give whiskey its due.

Julep is set to open in the 4141 Pennsylvania building in Westport - also home to Port Fonda - in March 2014.

“It will be a bar with food, paying homage to whiskey,” said Keely Edgington, who is opening the venue with her husband, Beau Williams.

They also operate Hawthorne & Julep, a classic cocktail catering operation. Williams is currently general manager and head bartender at Crossroads craft cocktail lounge Manifesto.
