The Joinery is a modern food hall + craft brewery on the banks of Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland, featuring seven specialty eateries + a funky fresh floral boutique. Jon + his wife Sarah, owners of Seventeen20, a company specializing in handcrafted industrial modern furniture, envisioned marrying their love of food with their love of design by developing a food hall that would bring the craft food scene together with the craft furnishings scene. The food + beverage options abound—from wood-fired Neapolitan pizza to traditional Japanese ramen, street snacks, sushi, and poké bowls, to Mexican street tacos + sides, to American favorites like fried chicken sandwiches, burgers + fries, plus seriously life-changing handcrafted artisan ice cream, as well as a full bar with 24 taps, 20 of which feature brews from Florida craft breweries, as well as natural/low-intervention/biodynamic/organic wines + craft cocktails—there’s truly something for everyone, all under one roof. On your way in/out of The Joinery, stop by Bloom Shakalaka—a funky fresh floral boutique + gift shop, where you can grab funky blooms by the stem, build your own wrap or arrangement, or even order full-service florals for your next event!

5 minutes, serves 1
For the cocktail:
1 chunk pineapple (about 1” square, but doesn’t have to be exact)
1 chunk celery (about the length of your pointer finger)
3–4 ¼” cucumber slices (use Kirby, Persian, or English varieties if you can find them, otherwise a regular cucumber works!)
6–8 cilantro leaves
2 slices jalapeño (less/more for less/more heat)
.75 ounces agave
1 oz lime juice (from about 1-2 limes —fresh tastes MUCH better than bottled)
2 oz Espolón Blanco tequila (or another brand, based on your preference)
For the rim:
1–2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
Rinse + chop your produce.
Put 1 tablespoon kosher salt + 1 teaspoon chili powder in a shallow bowl + stir until mixed.
Muddle produce with agave in a shaker tin until juices are extracted. Add remaining cocktail ingredients to tin. Add ice and shake for 30 seconds.
Using one of your squeezed limes, wipe around the rim of your glass. Turn your glass over in the bowl with the chili salt + twist back + forth until the rim is coated how you like it.
Drop some fresh ice cubes in your glass. Fine mesh strain the cocktail into lime chili salt-rimmed glass.
Cheers somebody + enjoy! (Repeat tomorrow)

We are Tempo 1930, quaint, quirky, and a bit unique.

You might be drawn in by the history but you’ll stay for our open-air window views of the beautiful fountain in Central Park, our fresh ingredient cuisine, our Award-Winning Hand Crafted Cocktails, our friendly staff who will welcome you like family, or the featured local Jazz and Blues artists.

Have fun and Enjoy
