Covid Safety Protocols

These are the extra steps we have implemented:

  • We installed two portable hospital-grade HVAC air purification systems.

    • Both units are HEPA Filtration rated at the 0.3 micron level and 99.99% efficiency

    • Each unit cleans the air in the entire interior lounge every 12 minutes 

    • One of the units also has the extra protection of interior UVC lights that are continuously shining on the collected organisms with high efficiency of kill 

  • All guests are required to wear a mask when not seated at their table

  • Our team wears masks at all times

  • Hard surfaces and restrooms are cleaned and disinfected every thirty minutes 

  • Multiple hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the space

  • When you arrive, each individual will be required to complete a COVID-19 symptom questionnaire as well as a temperature check 


At Corpse Reviver, our goal is to be a place where you can relax, enjoy a cocktail and "Revive your spirit."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you have patio seating? 

    Yes, we do! The patio is heated. It is not covered.

  • Are you kid and/or dog friendly? 
    This is a cocktail lounge that is part of a distillery so our requirements are a bit different. Please note that we are 21 and older only and can only allow service dogs.

  • Do you serve food?
    We do! We have light bites available including our house whipped goat cheese, our special recipe of sweet and spicy assorted nuts and of course, marinated olives.
