Electric Cure is what you get when an eclectic duo combine wacky with tiki.
Welcome to The Electric Cure and Velvet Lounge, a new space that’s just opened in Edgewater, where you can come to chill out, enjoy all things weird and wonderful, and listen to vinyl records with a tiki cocktail in hand. The owners, Veronica Ramos and Lexi Healy, are a passionate and eclectic duo, self-funding this bar that combines their passions with their craft.
At the end of the month, you can head on over to Edgewater to get a fresh & new take on tiki, one that you may not have seen before, with its own sense of humor and character that set it apart from the rest.
According to the Electric Cure website, there’s four things that describe their aesthetic: neon signs, tiki drinks, velvet paintings, and vinyl records. If that doesn’t paint a picture, then we don’t know what else will. Their Instagram has been active with behind the scenes glimpses at what patrons can expect. A recent Tik Tok described their latest Facebook Marketplace find, a bag of goose head statues that we assume will likely be decor.
They’ve also given some sneak peaks at their drinks. This one, called the Colorado Cannibal, is garnished with basil, melon, and a thin piece of ham wrapped around it, calling back to a popular combination in Spain.
They seem to have an affinity for the Creature from the Black Lagoon and their motto is “stay weird.” Will all that in mind, The Electric Cure won’t be just any tiki concept bar, and we’re excited to see this weird and wacky addition.
