P&S Trailer Services / Airstream Restoration

HOW A VINTAGE AIRSTREAM FOUND NEW HEIGHTS

Based out of a renovated dairy farm in Helena, Ohio, Bobby commissioned P&S Trailer Services to lead the renovation charge and transform a 1966 Caravel into a full-service rooftop bar. Three generations still work in the shop every day, and have been makin’ old things look shiny and new since 1968.

RECIPE: Mixed Berry Panna Cotta + Lemon-Thyme Sabayon

Life is sweet, and Bobby makes it even sweeter with our Mixed Berry Panna Cotta + Lemon-Thyme Sabayon. Chef Jorge Gonzalez shares how to create this perfect springtime dessert, equal parts beautiful and delish.

RECIPE: Bobby’s Go-To

Bobby loves a good solid drink, but one cocktail alone earns the moniker “Bobby’s Go-To.” This specialty drink combines crisp, bright flavors of citrus with the bold, stout spirits of Cocchi Torino and Old Forester. It’s robust, tangy, and perfect for slow-sippin’.

RECIPE: Bear Creek Bolognese

Straight from Bobby’s kitchen, Chef Jorge Gonzalez shares the recipe for one of our most-loved dishes. Inspired by comfort food and slow nights spent with the family, this is the perfect culinary adventure to take on in your own kitchen.

RECIPE: Apple Cart

The holiday season calls for fresh flavors and good libations, both to impress your loved ones and also tolerate them. Tavern bartender Alecia Beers shares her recipe for the “Apple Cart” cocktail featured on the menu now at Bobby Hotel.
