Located in Historic Downtown Goldsboro, Barrique presents a unique experience of fine wine & dining from Sommelier Eli Wuest.


Barrique is an upscale casual restaurant featuring quality Angus steaks, fine wine, and barrel aged whiskeys. We are located in the rapidly expanding Downtown Goldsboro, NC.

Barrique is a venue where all can come and celebrate life through dining, craft cocktails and wine selections from throughout the globe.  Barrique, being the French term for wine barrel, features two levels of dining and entertainment.  On the first floor we feature a wine cellar where wines can be purchased for retail and in-house consumption. Enjoy our beautiful wine bar to dine or enjoy a wine tasting. Dinner hours (5 to 10) features a boutique steakhouse dining experience along with produce and pork from local, sustainable farmers. Fresh seafood from the North Carolina coastline rounds out the dinner menu.

Our second floor hosts the 18th Amendment Lounge featuring a bar, lounge, and table service where barrel aged craft cocktails and whiskeys showcase the enjoyable benefits of oak treatment.  All barrel aged craft cocktails have a minimum of 21 days rest, then bottled and ready for guests consumption.  We offer Lounge seating for a fun and intimate evening with friends. Enjoy our pre-prohibition menu created just for the 18th Amendment Lounge!

A lovely covered pet-friendly back patio is available for those wishing to enjoy the outdoors while they dine and enjoy a beverage.

Barrique's ambiance and décor flows with the industrial history of the business once occupying the building. Come see our “Ghost” wall! The building was designed by the award winning renovation company, Blue Yonder Properties, in coordination with David Maurer Architecture and Billy Brock Construction.

It all started when…

The 18th Amendment forbade the “manufacture, sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors”—not their consumption. By law, wine, beer, or spirits Americans had stashed away in January 1920 were theirs to keep and enjoy in the privacy of their homes. For most, this amounted to only a few bottles, but some affluent drinkers built cavernous wine cellars and even bought out whole liquor store inventories to ensure they had healthy stockpiles of legal hooch.

The Volstead Act included a few interesting exceptions to the ban on distributing alcohol. Sacramental wine was still permitted for religious purposes (the number of questionable rabbis and priests soon skyrocketed), and drug stores were allowed to sell “medicinal whiskey” to treat everything from toothaches to the flu. With a physician’s prescription, “patients” could legally buy a pint of hard liquor every ten days. This pharmaceutical booze often came with seemingly laughable doctor’s orders such as “Take three ounces every hour for stimulant until stimulated.” Many speakeasies eventually operated under the guise of being pharmacies, and legitimate chains flourished. According to Prohibition historian Daniel Okrent, windfalls from legal alcohol sales helped the drug store chain Walgreens grow from around 20 locations to more than 500 during the 1920s.
