About

   After attending a SteamPunk event I began to think about how much fun I had and how great it would be if there was a local SteamPunk Bar that I could go to. This made me realize that I could fuse my entrepreneurial passion and my respective experience as a general contractor and restaurant manager to open a SteamPunk themed restaurant. With your help, we will create "MadCity SteamPunk Bar" one of the most unique restaurant / bars, which is fashioned after the sci-fi subculture of SteamPunk. The aesthetic tendencies of this subculture are fashioned after the industrialism of the 19th century Victorian-era England. So to give perspective, think dark colors, rusted iron and lots of gears and machinery.                                                                                                       The Food will be for everyone. Not frilly, pretentious, or over-stylized... just wholesome ingredients that taste amazing. The menu will be inspired from different countries specialties that will appeal to a diverse clientele adding value we will offer daily lunch and dinner specials. Good food deserves good drink, so we'll be sure you don't leave thirsty. There is something special about enjoying a great bottle of wine with friends and family. Our wine list will be a mix of old world and local vineyards, giving you choice without being overwhelming. We plan on sourcing as many craft beers as possible to give an alternative to the mainstream brands. For those who enjoy a stiffer drink, a full line of whiskeys, brandy's, scotches and other spirits will be available - served in one of our signature cocktails or customized to your liking.                                                          MadCity SteamPunk Bar will be warm and inviting, with exposed brick, rustic wood accents with a mix of mechanical touches. you will find tributes to the steampunk culture throughout from old photos, art prints and sculptures. Most importantly, a "family wall" acknowledging all the amazing people who helped make MadCity SteamPunk Bar come to life.     The service will be unlike anything you've had before. We will make you feel as if your the guest of honor. Every aspect of our service will be attentive, friendly and efficient - everything you need to relax and enjoy the food, drink and the people you came with... Our focus is to provide a fine dining experience in a unique cozy atmosphere.                            We're looking to create a place that celebrates SteamPunks unique culture and showcase our commitment to this community through contributing to local non-profit organizations - hiring local and buying local-with so many thriving and healthy farms in the area we're excited to use as many locally raised foods as possible - it'll taste better, cause less of an environmental impact and will help those who live and work in our area prosper.                                                                                                                               By backing this project you are helping to give me the funding to make MadCity SteamPunk Bar possible but if you can't back it at this time, there are still ways that you can help. Please share my project via social media, email and word of mouth to tell your friends about our campaign. Thank you in advance!!!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge with this project is the actual funding itself Kickstarter is new to me . Being able to tell a compelling story, getting friends, family and future friends to see the same vision and feel the passion you feel is challenging. With my combined experience in restaurants and construction, I know that it's hard to run a profitable restaurant. the challenges of using locally sourced food and their costs, labor costs, hiring a staff that believes in the same values around customer service, fresh food and community, so we will combine menu verity, atmosphere, ambiance, special themed nights and a friendly staff to create a restaurant of choice for the community. I have a lot of experience running profitable businesses and I really like a challenge!!
