Revolutsia gets a new cocktail bar and will add a cafe soon
They first opened a hair salon. Then they added a bar. And then the owners of the Fox & Ash hair salon at Revolutsia — the shipping container mall at 2721 E. Central that also has Prost, Fleur De Vin, and Ze German Markt — will also add a small cafe.
The new bar is called Good Company Taps & Spirits and is owned by Andrew Schwartz and Caleb Porter, who in 2018 opened a Wichita location of their McPherson-based hair salon Fox & Ash in a space on the upper level of Revolutsia.
The duo had also long dreamed of opening a bar and were close to adding one to Revolutsia before the pandemic hit, Porter said. Two years later, they finally succeeded. The owners moved Fox & Ash into a larger shipping container next door and used the empty space for Good Company.
The bar, which Porter describes as a cocktail hall with cocktails, opened on September 1. It is connected to the barbershop and is big enough to seat around 15 people inside. There is also a decent sized patio outside which will seat around 20 people once the patio furniture arrives.
In addition to local beer, craft cocktails made with homemade mixers, and a menu of “interesting” spirits not readily available in Wichita, Good Company also offers a gourmet menu. It offers LMNO pizzas from Mount Hope as well as locally made empanadas from Argentine Empanadas. It has charcuterie boards.
Porter and Schwartz haven’t finished developing in Revolutsia either. Soon they will support another shipping container and expand Fox & Ash so that it can accommodate 10 barber chairs instead of six.
Also, within the next two months they will be opening a small cafe called Pennant Coffee in a 160 square foot container just east of the bar. From there, they’ll sell coffee made by McPherson-based Pennant Coffee Roasters and offer a full menu of espresso drinks and pastries from Pee Wee + Sweets Bakehouse, the new bakery across from Revolutsia.
Although the small Pennant cafe can only accommodate a few seats inside, customers will be able to use Good Company’s indoor and outdoor seating.
Good Company hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
