Vacant Show-Mes is Now The Barrel House

On Evansville's east side over by Showplace Cinemas sits a big nice building with an incredible patio. That building was formerly Show-Mes.  My friends always liked to catch the UFC fights at Show-Mes because they had such a great patio, but unfortunately, after show-Mes closed that building sat vacant for quite some time, until now!

The Barrel House is Opening VERY Soon

Soon to open in the former Show-Mes building is The Barrel House. According to their website, The Barrel House will be serving up burgers, flatbreads, steaks, and bourbon.  In fact they have a whole menu just for their bourbon bar.  We are super close to Kentucky, and I know we have a lot of bourbon fans around here, so check out their full bourbon menu, here.  You can enjoy The Barrel House and all it has to offer when they officially open on June 20th!
