Corkage is just another way to BYOB! Restaurants charge a ‘corkage fee’ to open and serve each bottle of wine, beer or spirits you bring with you. We think it’s a fair exchange as the solicitous server opens your awesome bottle, provides lovely glassware and gives you the attentive service you would expect as though you bought your wine from their wine list or beer from their beer list.
Spirits corkage should be saved for when you bring that extra special, super expensive bottle you brought home from your drunken foray in Cognac or that rare bottle you found while cleaning out your old uncle’s basement…and didn’t tell anyone…
The restaurants listed here include information about how many bottles you can bring, corkage charge per bottle and any other service or restrictions they may have. Enjoy!
