Sol Liquor to host a bit of Capitol Hill Christmas past: a Sun Liquor eggnog pop-up

Not everything has to change. Summit Ave’s original Sun Liquor may now be Sol Liquor — and under new ownership — but a holiday favorite is scheduled to make a return to the bar this week.

A special pop-up is slated for Friday night at Sol as Sun Liquor’s famous aged eggnog makes a temporary return to Capitol Hill. The first glasses are scheduled to be poured at 5 PM. Happy holidays.

Originally only a seasonal treat for neighbors visiting the bar before finally bottling it for sale on a small scale, Sun has grown its eggnog business into a Santa-sized annual event with retail distribution.

Meanwhile, CHS talked with new owner Andre Sayre this summer as the longtime neighbor of the bar prepared to take over the lounge following founder Michael Klebeck’s moves to transition his Sun Liquor business including the company’s E Pike distillery off Capitol Hill. At the time, Sayre said he didn’t plan to change a thing “except two letters of the name.”

“It’s a great place for someone who just wants a simple, good craft cocktail,” Sayre said. “Nothing pretentious. Nothing gimmicky. Just fresh ingredients, a place to chat with friends, take somebody on a date”

Sol Liquor Lounge is located at 607 Summit Ave E.
