First Friday Cocktail Roundtable

Event Ended: Friday August 2nd, 2019

Did Someone Say Cocktails?

Our First Friday Cocktail Roundtable continues this upcoming Friday, August 2nd. We hope by now you have had a chance to stop in during one of our events, taste the amazing cocktails our bartenders and neighboring friends have put together. But if you haven’t – here’s your chance. Join us from 6-10pm as Natalie Cox from Vidrio and Scott Fleming from The Oak Bourbon Bar and Scratch Kitchen work to prepare tasteful and innovative craft cocktails.

If you have been to Vidrio before, we’d be surprised if you haven’t met Natalie. She’s been with the Vidrio family since we opened our doors two years ago, and honestly, she’s with us when we open and there when we close.

If you enjoy our cocktails, you can certainly thank Natalie. Her most recent creation…KEEP A SECRET. Which was our winning cocktail at our March 1st First Friday event. Stop in tonight, or First Friday to try her next concoction.

Natalie Cole
Natalie Cox


Natalie Cox is no stranger to the the cocktail crafting scene. Working in the hospitality industry since she was 17 years old, and being on our bar team since our opening, she has been an integral part of the restaurants growth and development that has also paralleled her own. From instilling her inspiration and creativity into Vidrio’s craft cocktails, almost every drink on the menu has a little Natalie twist. You can thank her later.

She’s almost always in the bar mixing up a drink for one of her regulars, but when she’s relaxing away from the restaurant, you can find her playing with her two dogs, or spending time with family and friends.
