Meet Cliff

Cliff was an officer of the Chicago Police in the 1960’s. In Chicago, everyone had their own local hangout, including Cliff. His favorite spot was a dark corner bar with a big sign out front. Even Cliff’s grandkids became regular patrons. Cliff welcomed all into his world and this is the essence of what we do.

We Welcome All People. One Guest, At A Time, Every Time.
