You may have seen photos and write-ups on local food blogs featuring a speakeasy-style club called “Hush, Hush” that meets on the sly around town, and serves up creative cocktails and great dishes from local chefs.
Now Hush, Hush is going public.
Hush, Hush events are organized by Andrew and Briana Volk, who soon will be opening a craft cocktail bar called the Portland Hunt and Alpine Club. The next one (called “not so Hush, Hush”) will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. April 18 at Eventide Oyster Co., 86 Middle St., and feature a range of special off-menu dishes from chefs Andrew Taylor and Mike Wiley. Volk will be serving up cocktails to go with the Eventide fare.
Tickets are available for $50 at Brown Paper Tickets.
Shhh, don’t tell anybody.
