A word about craft beer. We like to support small business even when it comes to beer. Getting into drinking craft beer is something that a lot of people are doing. The reason for this is because a lot of people are really starting to venture out and enjoy the taste and quality of their beer. People are starting to take into consideration that a hard working person deserves a beverage made by a person who worked just as hard as they do. Our craft beer selections come from the Chicagoland area and Louisiana. Please enjoy responsibly!

You can purchase food, wine and/or beer to take home. Of course it always tastes best in our dining room!

We have many “vintage finds” for sale. New items come in weekly. Visit us often!

We are currently looking for consignors!
