MG Road is a creative cocktail bar & lounge, located just around the corner from Chai Pani, at 19 Wall Street in downtown Asheville. In our kitchen we host a rotating roster of both upstart & renowned chefs and pop-up concepts. Our bar team led by Erin Hawley keeps the focus on the art of the craft cocktail while still keeping things fun and casual. The team balances technique & tradition with a level of creativity & innovation that’s been written up from Food & Wine Magazine to The Times of India. With acclaimed cocktails, local craft beers, eclectic wines from around the world, innovative & fun food, warm hospitality, and a stylish yet intimate and comfortable setting, MG Road is redefining the idea of the neighborhood bar.
THURSDAY 5/5: Cinco De Mayo with Chef Gustavo Báez
Our friend & super talented chef Gustavo Baez (of Botiwalla & Chai Pani Decatur) is visiting MG Road for one night only to bring us an authentic taste of Mexico. ¡Tacos! ¡Tortas! ¡Tequila!
Libation Migration – our two month-long initiative to bring visiting bartenders from all over the country (and continent) to pair with local chefs officially ended in October. It was a truly wonderful experience to bring all these great and talented folks to Asheville, and we feel honored to have hosted them. We laughed, we cried, we drank a lot of bourbon.
Check out our videos from the Migration below, and learn how to make some great whiskey cocktails using Bulleit whiskey – our partner throughout the series.
A stunning setting, world class mixologists, acclaimed chefs, the Chai Pani group’s signature warmth and hospitality – a party anywhere else would be simply uncivilized.
From a Bollywood dance party, to a Downton Abbey-esqe soiree, to a comfortable and cozy night out with friends, MG Road has you covered. We’ve handled art showings, fashion shows, wedding rehearsals, album release parties, film festivals, fundraisers, and everything in between. We can’t wait to host your next special event.
