Places You Can Get Fernet: Citizen Wine Bar in Worchester, MA

An emailed tip from Dave from the Bay State:
There is a bar called the Citizen in Worcester MA where Fernet flows freely!  From fernet and cokes to hanky pankys.  Shots chased with Ginger beer and a branca menta flip made with housemade cocoa tincture that is out of this world!  These guys are true kings of the craft and well known as one of the very few places to get fernet in central mass.  Just thought you should know.

Citizen Wine Cheese and Chocolate Bar is the sort of establishment that eschews both conventional bar food AND the Oxford Comma. On the other hand, they do boast "proper ratios" every night. Which is not only impressive, but (depending on how they enforce those ratios) potentially discriminatory. Wooo!

Filed Under: Places you can get Fernet, Boston, Bars should be all forced to post their ratios all the time, welcome to Worchester $1.25 pa, The Oxford Comma is the sexiest comma, Tom Brady is a handsome man,


  1. Did you intentionally spell Worcester wrong? It is neither spelled nor pronounced "Worchester."

    Also, the Worcester that I worked in for several years did not yet contain this fancy wine and chocolate bar. My fond memories of Worcester include my prostitute clients the House of Correction.

  2. Worcester is properly spelled 'Worcester'. Liz - thanks for making me feel good about working in Worcester! How long ago was that you worked there? Believe it or not, there are some really good spots in town now...good food, and proper cocktails

  3. Pssst! It's been almost half a year. Update your blog! You could use any of the many pics/emails I'm sure you've been sent about places to have Fernet.
