Julep, a new cocktail lounge focusing on whiskey, is set to open at 5 p.m. Friday at 4141 Pennsylvania Ave., Suite 104, (on Archibald Street) in Westport.

It is described as “Fine whiskey. Classic cocktails. Low Country cuisine. Southern hospitality.”

“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.

Julep also will offer beer — from Boulevard Tank 7 to Pabst Blue Ribbon — and wine by-the-glass. The menu will include a rotating selection of deviled eggs, peel and eat shrimp, assorted seasonal housemade pickles, gulf shrimp po’boys, “griddled” three cheese sandwiches, marinated rice and pea salad, vanilla panna cotta and more.

Hours will be 5 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
