Love this place! Happened to be walking by on the cold Friday before Memorial Day and they had wonderful outdoor seating with many heaters and fire features, live music, wonderful cocktails and food. Their gluten free pizza is so yum! Looking forward to making my way back!

I have never left a review anywhere but this is worth it.
If you’re in Douglas/Saugatuck, this is a must visit! Had a great time having drinks and listening to live music. Service was fantastic and tasty cocktails/bites! Relaxing vibes and you notice the love and attention to detail the owner Kim and her employees bring to the table. ☺️
I will be back!

THE SPICY PARISIAN COCKTAIL
Let’s get you started:
To note if you’d like to make this a mocktail, simply skip the alcohol, it honestly tastes amazing w/or w/o 🍸
4 Bartlett or Bosc Pears, sliced in half with the seeds remove
4 Tbsp. honey, divided
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. cinnamon, divided Plus more for a garnish
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. water
3 cans Ginger Beer, chilled
1.5 oz Vodka or Rum (spice rum works too)
Garnish: Rosemary springs and cinnamon
Let’s get Mixing:
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees to make the Pear compote.
- In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, 3 Tablespoons of honey, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon. Dredge the cut pears in the mixture, then place face down in a baking dish.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool in pan.
- In a blender, add pears with ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and water, and blend until liquid. Chill for at least two hours or up to 4 days. (This will yield 12 ounces of pear puree.)
- When ready to serve, combine if preparing a pitcher use 1/4 - 1/c cup of the pear compote mix and the Ginger Beer. If you’d rather serve by the glass, combine 1-2 tablespoons of the pear compote mix, 1.5 oz of vodka or a nice sliced rum and top it off with cold Ginger Beer.
- Garnish with a sprig of rosemary toasted and a cinnamon stick.
LETTERS TO SANTA KOLACHE COOKIES
Premade Pillsbury Pie Crust Dough
Raspberry Jam or Cherry Pie Filling
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg (egg wash)
Lets Get Baking!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Roll out both pie crust sheets and use a rolling pin to smooth out the dough if there are any crinkles.
Using a 4” square cookie cutter or knife, cut out four squares from each dough round. If you roll out all the scraps you can get 2 more squares for a total of 10 envelopes for Santa.
Turn your square at a diagonal and fill with about a tablespoon of raspberry jam.
Fold the two sides of your square into the center of the hand pie so the corners meet. Gently press down then fold the bottom triangle up to the middle of the pie so it slightly overlaps the two sides. Press down so the envelope sticks together. Continue with all the hand pies.
Whisk up one egg in a small bowl and brush the egg wash over all the pies, carefully avoiding the jam.
Bake for approximately 20-24 minutes until golden brown. Remove and let cool.
Dust with powdered sugar then gently spoon a small amount of additional jam mixture on the top fold of the pie envelope. The extra jam looks pretty peeking out the top of the powdered sugar envelop.
If you wish to make the fondant seal. Simply roll out the fondant so it’s about 1/8” thick and use a North Pole stamp to make the “wax seals”. Use a knife or cookie cutter to cut into small circles and dust with edible glitter.
TIP: To make the edible glitter stick more easily, dip your paintbrush in vodka or honey before adding the glitter.

Happy 5 Year Anniversary Coastal Society 🥂
It’s been an amazing journey filled with risk, rewards, challenges and great achievements.
I innovated and created Coastal Society as the first of its kind in a new category of retailtainment over 6 years ago, when there weren't retail brands showing up to offer guests a unique differentiated social experience.
I wanted my guests to have a surprise & delight feeling that made you say WOW and had you feeling a part of something special that evoked a sense of friendship and community. Sip🍸Shop🛍️Savor🍴Socialize🍍🎸 is our motto.
I thought “anyone can open a bar or restaurant or boutique but no one had tried all 3 as one cohesive experience, which I felt was needed in the market.
I hope you visit often and please introduce yourself, I’m always happy to welcome my guests and fund fulfillment sharing my story with those who are genuinely interested!
COASTAL SOCIETY; A Carefully Curated Boutique, Craft Cocktail Bar & Dining Experience.
To Celebrate our 5 Years in the Community & in Business we are launching 5 unique curated events throughout the season.
