GRAFTON — Martini Pete’s, 1315 Wisconsin Ave., in
Grafton is getting larger after owner Peter Olds got
approval to expand the cocktail bar into the adjoining
space to the south, previously occupied by Merle Norman.
The Grafton Plan Commission OK’d the request Tuesday.
The business will use 2,000 square feet with the
expansion, with the new space being used as a lounge
area, according to a report by Village Planner Jessica
According to the plan of operation submitted by Olds in
May, the added lounge space will be a seating area for
customers and also serve as an area for private parties,
wine, beer or liquor tastings and a venue for live music
Olds’ plan of operation listed July 1 as the opening
date for the expansion.
Another business had previously applied for a
conditional use permit in that space, but the owner of
the property changed his mind in favor of Olds’
expansion, Wolff said.
