Spinning J is located on the corner of California and Augusta Avenues in the storefront of a beautiful early 1900’s building which formerly housed an art gallery. The lovely 1928 Liquid Carbonic marble bar, barstools, and brass foot rail were salvaged from a basement outside Milwaukee, and were originally built for Sanger Drug in Milwaukee where they served patrons until the 1970’s.
Spinning J was built using almost entirely reclaimed and recycled materials, from the backbar made from donated church pews and framer’s trim, to the light fixtures built from reclaimed materials, and the mix-matched vintage restaurant china and soda glasses. We hope you enjoy seeing so many old things made new again.
