From the Cafe 27 Fb page comes notice of changing hours at the Main Street eatery. Rest assured that having just emerged from a lengthy period of business introspection, I'm feeling much solidarity with Cafe 27. The words "tough economy" are being repeated all over; just last week, a downtown retailer observed to me, "If anyone says they're doing well, they're lying."
And if anyone in city government says that downtown has been a conducive spot for doing business these past few months, he's lying, too. But let's leave that for another time.
WE want to thank each of you for making Cafe 27 your destination for a great meal, fun and entertainment for the last year. We have been struggling to find a way in this tough economy to provide you with the quality and service that you have come to love. However, with recent street closures, Main Street improvements and fluctuating costs ... we have determined that we must restructure in order to stay afloat and continue to provide our guests with the highest quality dining and entertainment experience possible. So, effective immediately, Cafe 27/Liquidz will ONLY be open Thursday through Saturday evenings for dinner service from 5pm to 11pm, serving our full cafe menu. We have also added a late night bar menu that will be served from 11pm until 2am for all our night owls. We will continue to offer our great entertainment: DJ SDot, Linda'z Lazer City Karaoke and Amazing Live Music. We will also be adding a couple of pool tables.
We hope these changes will help us thrive, and that we will continue to earn your business. Please continue to make Cafe 27 your destination for all your dining and entertainment needs. Make your reservations for a great night out on the town. Change is hard ... for all of us! But with our community's support, we will be packed every weekend. Hope to see you here soon.
