City & Culture
T by Dem started out as a result of 2 independent spirits joining forces across the Ocean. We are grateful to have our Stronghold in one of the coolest and most creative districts on the East Coast. Our vibrant community offers delicious cuisines from around the world, music clubs, trucks stops, galleries, gourmet markets, craft fairs, farmer's markets, maker spaces, and maker stores. If this is your first time in Vermont, we invite you to add Burlington to your itinerary, and come see us up close and personal!
Fine dining and accomodation
Hotel VT , Juniper Restaurant, and Hen of the Woods boast some of the best hospitality and food in Burlington.
"Vermonters are known for being independent, together. And like Vermont, Hotel Vermont is full of compatible contradictions. Located in downtown Burlington near the shores of Lake Champlain, we’re rustic and modern, local and global, natural and sophisticated, hand wrought and high tech. We give you space to yourself and room to gather. And we’re here to help you explore like a local, relax like it’s your job, and soak in every detail. From food fresh from the farm to your plate, to the glorious sunsets across the lake and ideas for exploring off the grid, we hope you’ll discover and enjoy our beautiful state as much as we do."
In the heart of the South End Art District, you'll find our second business AO Glass. Rich Arentzen runs the manufactory that has become the largest supplier of handblown lighting components on the East Coast. Tove from T by Dem works on product development and marketing. At AO Glass we work with Hubbardton Forge, Lindsey Adelman, and many more. From May 18 we will have a store open in our new ware house studio, weekdays 10-4 and Fridays 5-8.
"Our eight hundred square foot hot shop can reach 140° fahrenheit (60° celsius) and it is in the beating heart of the Burlington South End Arts District. Music and laughter echo from the garage door we keep wide open year round. Local artists and residents gravitate to the warmth and excitement of the place for hanging out, drinking coffee, and contributing with their creativity."
gourmet wine & cheese
Dedalus Wine Shop, Market, and Wine Bar. Our gourmet neighbor on Pine Street. Your tastebuds will thank you for bringing you here.
"Dedalus started out as a little backroom wine shop with a dozen or so selections. Just the stuff we wanted to drink but couldn’t find anywhere else. Over the years we’ve grown to become one of the best indie wine shops in the country. We’ve added a world-class cheese, charcuterie and conserva selection and built a warm, welcoming wine bar stocked with awesome bottles and great food. All under one roof."
The Pine Street borough, of which T by Dem belongs, has it all—and the most beloved spot has to be Great Harvest Bread!
"Our purpose and passion is to provide you and your family with the freshest and most flavorful baked goods you’ve ever tasted straight from the source. Come in for a free slice of hot-out-of-the-oven bread or a taste of our other delicious goodies. Enjoy yourself and bring your children. We’re family owned and community focused."
furniture and design
Matt Hastings at Riven is a poet in woodwork, and another treasured neighbor on Pine Street.
"Riven wood has been split by force, such as when chopping firewood with an axe. It is a process through which one is able break a log into smaller pieces for working and was in wide use before the advent of powered milling machinery. The act itself speaks more directly to the intention of creation, less so to the desired outcome which can never be fully controlled."
