Spring is almost gone already (crazy as it sounds) as we begin to head to summer! Looks like the heat is bringing some new businesses in and helping some old friends reopen! May our May Business roundup help you find some of the hottest places this summer.
- Club Arcada and the Arcada Theatre – 105 E Main St.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic impacted businesses heavily, it provided some opportunity for others such as the historic Arcada Theatre. With their venue closed, the Arcada used the time to renovate, completing extensive renovations to polish the theatre and make the “Gem of the Fox Valley” shine brighter than ever before. The first on the docket to open is the famous Club Arcada Speakeasy & Restaurant for all to enjoy high-class entertainment, food and drinks. The Arcada will also be opening their other new additions: Rock ‘N Za restaurant, BarCada, Rock ‘N Ravioli and the Arcadian suites, as well as the Theater soon! Make sure to follow the Arcada Theatre for all the updates on when everything will open and visit their website to start finding live music performances!
