The Golden Pineapple in Asheville


Soak in the last days of summer with a refreshing Summer Sun cocktail at The Golden Pineapple!

The Golden Pineapple

Longtime Asheville bartenders, Katey Ryder and Donnie Pratt have opened the Golden Pineapple, a new neighborhood bar in the historic Baker Building at 503 Haywood Road in West Asheville.

We are very excited to share the space with friends in the neighborhood and folks from all over Asheville. We will be opening up with a thoughtful selection of wine, beer and spirits, with eight beers on draft, three wines and a Spanish cider on draft. There will also be other options in bottles and cans. There will be heavy focus on wine with a leaning towards natural production.

The menu will include a 13 drink house cocktail menu that will be made with care, using fresh and house-made ingredients. We only stock things we feel good about.
