The Whiskey Jar project overview

Project Description


The Whiskey Jar is an amazing restaurant that had just opened in Charlottesville Virginia. I approached the owners about creating a new site for them which was based off my Restaurant CMS and Menu Management System called Piqant.

I based the design off their unique printed menus and the general feel of the restaurant. All menu items and specials are able to be updated in realtime using the piqant.com restaurant administration tools. For mobile users there is a jQuery Mobile version so its easy to see what’s available from any device. No need to download a PDF on your phone just do view and out-of-date menu like most restaurant sites.

Administrators can edit content, menus, daily specials can be added on the fly or scheduled in advance. Also a live music calendar/schedule.

Project Highlights

  • Full management system for site content, menus, live music, daily specials and drinks.
  • Automatic switch to jQuery Mobile version for phones and smaller tablets.
