Elwood's Liquor & Tap will open this summer.

Elwood's Liquor & Tap opening on Water Street

Elwood's Liquor & Tap will soon open on Water Street in the former Rosie's Water Works, 1111 N. Water St. Rosie's closed in 2018 after over 30 years in business.

Elwood's – likely a reference to Dan Akroyd's character in "The Blue's Brothers" – has undergone renovations since it was purchased by Drew Deuster and JJ Kovacovich of Wild Planet Hospitality Group, and Nate Showers, proprietor of Rogue's Gallery, 134 E. Juneau Ave.

Currently, Elwood's is in a construction process that includes a massive deck on the north side of the building.

Showers says Elwood's will hopefully open in 2-3 weeks. Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for a First Look.

I went to Rogues Gallery for my first time, on 414 Day = April 14th. It was a cool place. I did meet Nate there, and he seems like a good guy. I am looking forward to seeing Elwood's Liquor & Tap opening. I see the construction of the Deck has been going on for some time. I've tried to peep in the windows, but you can't see anything. I hope it all comes together soon. Will there be free H-D and motorcycle parking if we're there having a few?
