11th Anniversary Party at Sub Zero Vodka Bar

Sunday, Sept. 6, 2015

Sub Zero Vodka Bar, one of St. Louis’ premiere dedicated spirits bars and the first of two restaurants owned by Gamlin Restaurant Group, is proud to announce its 11th anniversary event.

Since 2004, Sub Zero Vodka Bar has been serving up an ever-growing collection of vodkas — currently, more than 700 — to its loyal clientele in the always-hip Central West End.

To celebrate this milestone, the bar is holding the ULTIMATE SUNDAY FUNDAY — free and open to the public — from 1 p.m. to midnight on Sunday, Sept. 6. The event will feature drink specials, an ice luge and giveaways from popular vodka brands such as Stolichnaya, Reyka, Effen, Three Olives, Absolut, Pearl, Skyy, Loaded, Tito’s, London and Stiletto.

“We love being a part of St. Louis’ nightlife,” owner Derek Gamlin says. “This is a business that just never gets old. It’s always evolving and we have fun evolving with it. The more established we get in St. Louis’ restaurant community, the more opportunities we get to do cool things for our customers.

“We’re just very proud of what we’ve accomplished here, and excited to see what the future holds.”

Staying on top of trends and maintaining the high standards its customers have come to expect are important parts of the Sub Zero Vodka Bar business model. But equally important is finding ways to give back to the community. That’s why this year, the restaurant has decided to partner with Chris Long of the St. Louis Rams and his Waterboys initiative, a project that aims to use the NFL’s platform to help provide clean water to communities in Sub-Sahara Africa.

“We are so excited to be partnering with Chris Long and his Waterboys initiative,” Gamlin says. “Chris has done an incredible job bringing attention to such an important issue with the #Drink4Water hashtag.

“So often in America we take for granted our access to clean water — heck, we even make it into vodka. We know this is a cause our guests will feel good about supporting, and we just want to make sure they have fun doing it.”

Opportunities to support the Waterboys will include purchasing a #Drink4Water T-shirt and/or a bottle of Stiletto vodka autographed by Long, with 100 percent of those proceeds benefiting the charity. Sub Zero Vodka Bar will also donate 5 percent of purchases made during the event to the charity.
