Our latest TALKGreenville article…on stands now:

from The Peddler


We headed “out of town” for a warm-n-cozy cocktailin’ experience this month. The Peddler on Poinsett Highway, just past Greenville’s downtown sprawl, sits in a little holler where time seems to stand still. Many locals grew up visiting The Peddler for family outings, and many continue the tradition, enjoying that famous salad bar and certified Angus beef.  No wonder it’s still goin’ strong!

A rustic dreamland retreat… 

from The Peddler

Stone gathered from the property holds this humble hostel standing proudly even after all these years.  Originally built as a private residence around 1918, the home stood above “Dreamland…the people’s park” about three miles outside Greenville’s city limits.  Folks came from all over to enjoy swimming, dancing, picnicking and more. While the old lake may be overgrown and the Dreamland sign retired, the appeal remains. 

The Scofflaw…

Woodford Reserve, vermouth, orange bitters, lemon and grenadine ensure you won’t be scoffing at this liquid elixir. There should be a law that makes this beverage mandatory for all who enter! Antoine, a 12-year veteran Peddler family member and bartender extraordinaire, likes to call it the “lady of Manhattans”.  So embrace those great curves, folks! 

The Rusty Nail…

This drink isn’t too strong or too delicate, not too sweet or too bitter. Take a sip before squeezing the lemon…delicious! Now try a dose of the lemon and watch the flavors pop. Mellow or brazen, you can have it your way!  We can all relate to feeling rusty right about now, but the Rusty Nail will keep your bones from creaking when you leave.

Fun and games… 

from The Peddler

With walls covered in nostalgia and memorabilia, much donated over the years by regulars, The Peddler remains a place to enjoy some R&R. Guests play checkers and cards or simply lounge by the fire with a cocktail, visiting with friends old and new. You just can’t help but enjoy yourself!

 

from The Peddler

 The Peddler is a place to linger longer, so don’t come if you are in a hurry.  Established and run by locals, this haven is full of familiar faces (just ask the “Wednesday irregulars”).  The Schneider family (Deborah and sons) and their super-loyal staff have managed to keep a local legacy alive and well.

We encourage you to venture “outside the box” for a truly unique drinkin’ and dinin’ experience.  As they say, “no one ever wants to leave The Peddler”.
