For years, Tony and I have gone to The Rep, a Marquette game, or some other event downtown and thought it would be nice to stop on the way home for a nightcap and a nosh to discuss the evening. We found it challenging to find such a spot close to our west side home, so we decided that we would just have to open it ourselves. That's the genesis of Charles E. Fromage: Where an adult can be an adult. 


We hope that Charles E. Fromage will be like the 18th-century French salons - places where people gathered to discuss literature, art, current events, and ideas. We hope you will feel comfortable doing just that at Charles E. Fromage - although you are, of course, free to discuss sports or play a game of cribbage. We have the place for whatever brings you together.

Join us for a glass of wine or Wisconsin craft beer, delicious snacks, and the company of other interesting people in our intimate gathering space on Vliet St.
