Something new is brewing at the Dayton Art Institute: Ghostlight at Night

Many of us here in South Park have come to know and love Ghostlight Coffee for its hand-poured, artisan-roasted coffees and pastries. Now thanks to a partnership with the Dayton Art Institute and Dayton Cocktail Co., Ghostlight will be offering Ghostlight at Night, an art filled coffee, cocktail and entertainment experience.

Now through the first of the year, stop by the Dayton Art Institute’s Leo Bistro to enjoy a cup of coffee lovingly prepared by Ghostlight’s coffee artisans or sample a hand-crafted signature cocktail created by Dayton Cocktail Co., Dayton’s unique, bartending service.  Businesses In South Park Dayton Ohio
