Downtown Elmira is bursting with excitement to welcome a new tap room and restaurant. Tonight was the official ribbon cutting for the Ill Eagle Taphouse.
You will be transported back in time to the prohibition era when speakeasies (illegal drinking spots) were all the rage. Located in the historic Federal building the new owners have maintained the original character with the dark wood work and ornate features throughout the building. The ambiance is spot on!
The Ill Eagle offers a large variety of beer and wine – all on tap! You also have the option of both beer or wine in a flight. And of course you will want a snack to go with your Ill Eagle beverage. They offer a variety of cheese, fresh fruit, hummus platters and shrimp cocktail. And of course you can’t have beer without pizza! The food options will change from time to time so stop in often to see what new surprises you might find.
Sit and relax around the wall mounted fire place or join your friends at one of the many tables to hangout and chat. Or if you are looking for a little more activity the Ill Eagle offers a fully stocked billiards room, darts and lawn games.
The Ill Eagle is easy to find, located on the corner of Church St and Clemens Center Parkway. The front parking lot is small but if you drive behind the building there is plenty of parking.
Elmira is seeing a resurgence and the Ill Eagle is a first step in breathing new life into the city. I look forward to seeing all of you there enjoying a flight of beer and playing a game of darts.
Thank you for exploring with me – Shelly
