Mercantile in the Mission

Last week, Kelsey Laverne, of Wingtip’s Bank Of Wine And Spirits, opened the first pop-up for her barware company Highbar. Highbar is aimed at creating unique and custom bar remedies for the home and on the go.

“My goal is to provide nostalgic and well made products with contemporary simplicity,” says Laverne.


The pop-up, at the Mission District at art gallery and shop, Accident and Artifact, showcased Laverne’s handcrafted and curated pieces, including small boxes, a portable bar suitcase, and a full-on stainless steel bar.
The concept emerged from Laverne’s experiences struggling with the waning square footage of city living. She wanted to create a solution for people who sought to entertain their guests with libations in an elegant and practical manner.A perfect gift for the holidays, prices range from $350-$450 for a small box, $650-$850 for a suitcase, $2200 for a large box and $2600-$3200 for the cart.
