August Spotlight: Inner Circle Vodka Bar

Inner Circle Springfield is excited to be joining the Downtown community of Springfield, MO. This unique and energetic bar specializes in Infused Vodka created from high-quality fresh products. Along with our signature infused vodkas we offer everyday cocktails with a full bar and good food that compliments any drink of your choice. Patio games, live music, DJs, and unique events add a welcoming environment to any night out.

The owners of Inner Circle, Jacob Harper and Andy Cagle, met in college and bonded over their passion for throwing parties and bringing people together. They remained friends while setting out on their own careers after college. Jacob, went on to a career with Eskimo Joes in Stillwater, OK. Quickly rising through the bar and restaurant management ranks. While Andy became a lawyer and practiced in Texas. However, the idea of opening a bar together and creating a place where they could pursue their passions only got stronger. In the Summer of 2012, both owners were going through a transition in their lives and they decided to give up their day jobs and follow their dream! Through a lot of hard work and hustle Inner Circle opened two and a half years later. The name of the bar harkens back to the owners’ college days and a group of friends they called “The Inner Circle.” Instead of just opening a regular bar, Jacob and Andy wanted to create a welcoming and fun concept that would elevate a night out and make everyone feel like they are part of that Inner Circle.

One of a kind Infused Cocktails – Inner Circle is known for their fresh and flavorful infused cocktails. These drinks are made by infusing vodka in-house with fresh ingredients. We pride ourselves on keeping things fresh and new by testing and creating a new seasonal menu every three months that uses in-season fruits and herbs to infuse not only vodka but, whiskey, rum, gin, and tequila. These drinks only last for a short time so make sure to try them out when you are visiting.

Patio – The brick and glass-enclosed patio is the largest downtown. This space is the perfect place to spend time with friends; whether it is playing some of our outdoor games cooling down with a tasty drink from our outdoor bar or participating in one of our crazy events for which we are known.

Events – Inner Circle is the perfect spot for events, parties and bar crawls. We have at least one big fun event each month. Some of our featured happenings are a Vodka 1K, adult tricycle racing, Oktoberfest, and Harry Potter Day. On August 15 we are having a 90’s party. The Mixtapes are headlining a fun night with dancing, slap bracelets, themed drinks, and everything 90’s.

Group Infusion Guided Classes- When we come out with our new seasonal infusion menu we host classes that teach you how to make some of these amazing drinks at home.
