About

So, here's the story: From day 1 we saw that the size of grampa's was going to pose some problems.  There just isn't enough space for all the beautiful people that want to dine here (a good problem to have).  We can't make the restaurant any bigger so we decided it would be a good idea to make a "waiting room" of sorts.  We wanted to create a space that would compliment grampa's and give our guests somewhere comfortable to drink, socialize and wait for their table.

As we continue to move forward the bar is taking on a life of its own and shaping into something quite beautiful.  In addition to serving as a waiting area for guests of grampa's pizzeria it will also be on the forefront of the drink scene in Madison.

We are exploring all of our options in funding this project; begging and borrowing from friends, family, banks and state and city organizations but we are still coming up short.  Our efforts to maintain the historic integrity of this beautiful house and neighborhood come at a cost and we need your help to bridge the gap and get this project funded.  In helping to fund this Kickstarter you will ensure that this project is completed, we simply can't do it without you.  Thank you all for taking the time to consider donating and please remember to tell all of your friends! 

Risks and challenges

There are always obstacles when opening a new business whether it is roadblocks from the city, financing from banks, pushback from the neighborhood, etc... We are committed to getting Gib's open and there is nothing that will stand in our way. We will continue to push forward while never sacrificing or compromising the standards and goals we have set for ourselves.
