Love that they’ve re-purposed materials from old the buildings

Cool atmosphere, great drinks, great food, fun staff! Just what downtown DeKalb needed. Love that they’ve re-purposed materials from old the buildings like the brick behind the bar and the bar counter. It’s the new hot spot with character and you need to check it out!
