Preacher Bar – Soulful Food & Abbey Ales
Preacher Bar, who opened its’ doors in November 2014, is the brainchild of partners Richard Virgovic and Tomas Trska who also happen to own the restaurant next door – Kelsey’s Pizzeria. The decor is an eclectic mix of sparkling jewel-tone stained glass lanterns and Mexican-inspired artwork with a splash of gothic and pseudo good time religion.
Preacher Bar’s atmosphere is casual and family friendly yet upscale with handmade cocktails and a mouthwatering menu unlike any establishment on the Space Coast. The funky mix of background music is kept low enough to conversate over and ranges from classics like the Eurythmics to current pop and electronic dance.
The menu consists of starters like the Scotch Egg – a hardboiled egg wrapped in sausage and rolled in breadcrumbs then baked to a golden brown and crowd favorite, Crispy Calamari served with petal blossom sauce. Follow up with an entrée like our Bacon Mac N’ Cheese – pasta tossed in a blend of smoked Gouda, Vermont Cheddar and Fontina cheese topped with applewood smoked bacon. Looking for something on the lighter side? Try one of our Preacher Favorites, Blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos served with fresh ginger slaw, avocado cilantro cream sauce and mango relish. Top off your meal with one of Preacher Bar’s sinfully sweet desserts. We offer favorites like Tiramisu, fresh Key Lime Pie and a decadent chocolate cake.
We have over 40 craft, import and domestic beers both on tap and in bottles. Our selection of beer changes monthly which means there’s almost always a new beer new to tempt your tastebuds. Our extensive wine selection includes reds, whites, sparkling wines and blends from California to Italy, Argentina and New Zealand. No matter your preference, there is sure to be a wine selection you’ll fall in love with.
If you prefer a cocktail over beer or wine our full liquor bar and handmade cocktails are sure to please. Our newest additions to the lineup are the Preacher Mule – made with ginger infused vodka, fresh lime juice, agave nectar and ginger ale and the Moscow Mule – made with Stoli vodka, fresh lime juice and ginger beer. Our Mules are served in the traditional copper mug which keeps your drink cold long after it is served.
Preacher Bar is located at 8699 Astronaut Blvd. (A1A), about a mile south of Port Canaveral, directly south of the Radisson Resort at the Port. We are open daily at 11am and serve dinner Sunday – Thursday until 9:30 pm and Friday and Saturday until 10pm.
