The best patio around can be found on the southern edge of Johnson County at Bull Creek Distillery in Spring Hill, Kansas. Find breathtaking views, outdoor live entertainment and a full restaurant and bar with extensive patio seating where they serve their premium Bull Creek Bourbon that gave birth to the business and started it all. Their hardy American Oak three year rye bourbon that’s 90 proof is said to blow the socks off any seasoned bourbon drinker and is bottled right there on the banks of Bull Creek, the creek running through the property.
Dwaine Hood is the director of operations at Bull Creek Distillery.
“Our business was created with one dream in mind: to be a destination venue where all individuals can come and escape the daily grind of life,” Hood says. “When you step through our doors, we want you to feel as if you are at a resort. From the venue itself to our amazing team members, we make it our mission to provide this experience to every customer.”
The menu and atmosphere make this dream a reality with its bistro style menu comprised of upscale pub food and drinks.
“Our most popular appetizer is our Bull Creek Balls, which are handmade cream cheese and jalapeño deep fried balls. If you're looking for an entree, I would encourage you to try our Bull Creek Philly—it’s our take on a classic sandwich kicked up a notch with bacon, jalapeños and cream cheese. To finish it off, I would recommend our table side s’mores, which are sure to take you back to your childhood.
“In terms of drinks I would recommend our Mama’s Lemonade, which features our very own Bull Creek Lemon Vodka, lemonade, soda water and strawberry puree or one of my personal favorites, the Southern Belle that’s made with bourbon, lemonade, tea and peach Schnapps. We are in the works of expanding our spirits line to include a new whiskey and are partnering with a very special figure in the Kansas City market to release a limited small batch bourbon in the next few months.”
The Bowery is their rustic elegant event venue conveniently connected to Bull Creek Distillery. This is an ideal location for both indoor and outdoor weddings, corporate events and private parties of all sizes. They offer customizable decor as well as bar and food accommodations based on personal style and event type.
“We are a very family-friendly and energetic location," says Owner Mike Denny. "We have an amazing outdoor section of our venue where we host live music every Thursday, Friday and Sunday throughout the summer. We like to joke that we have it all, so if there is something you want we probably offer it.”
