LouElla, a bottle shop and bar, is expected to open up in February next to Hutchin’s Garage off Geer Street. They’ll offer a curated wine, craft beer, and fortified selections from family operated producers.

Where did the name LouElla coming from?

The business takes its name and mission and proprietor Campbell Davis’s Great Aunt LouElla, who was much beloved for her warmth, hospitality and generous spirit. Cam says it’s his mission to share LouElla’s hospitality with the community.
