Turn-Key Bar/Restaurant:

Originally constructed in the 1920s as a residential dwelling, this distinctive two-level building, uncommonly featuring an expansive backyard for a commercial property, served as a community office space. Embracing the spirit of community, the current owner has meticulously transformed the 3,600 square feet space into a German beer garden.

The generous backyard area provides an ideal setting for communal gatherings, offering space for outdoor dining, fire pits, live musical performances, and various events. Enhancing the ambiance are a covered wood deck, rustic wooden privacy fences, two handicap ramps, and conveniently located handicapped parking at the front. The inviting indoor space showcases a custom-made 14-draft tower, banquette seating, a lengthy wooden bar, two bathrooms, and a sizable storefront window with counter seating for additional patrons and people-watching enthusiasts.
