One For The Road

Something about sipping a full-bodied bourbon after work brings you right back to that local watering hole where everyone actually did know your name. Whether you had your initials carved on the corner bar or you simply miss your favorite metropolis, this etched glass set lets you raise a toast to hidden gems and great memories with designer detail.

Created by Boston-based designer Brian Johnson, these glasses feature an intricate city map that sprawls along the curves of the vessel. Interspersed street names and the locale's coordinates offer an unexpected way to show off your own stomping grounds. Glasses made in Ohio and etched in New Hampshire.

Sold individually.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

    Was very pleased with the design and the cities that are etched on the glass were the ones I was looking for, but it would be nice to see more cities represented.

        Bought a pair of these for a friend who was missing her home town. She was thrilled beyond belief she say "they're so beautiful she almost doesn't want to use them." Perfect for someone looking for a personal and unique gift. The price is right as a thoughtful gift between college students well. Just an all around great experience and product.

          I gave the Washington D.C. glasses to my boyfriend who is moving across the country. He was impressed with how unique and well made they are. They look unique and stylish and are a great way to incorporate his hometown into his new place.

              My husband mentioned he would like some Austin souvenir glasses and I looked in many stores without finding anything quite as chic. I really liked the Austin map and sleek design of the glasses.
