week will be the last for the Lakeside Restaurant & Lounge under its
current name and site on Phantom Woods Road in Mukwonago.
After doors close
Sunday evening, the restaurant and staff will make their transition
a few miles east to the the site of Heaven City at
National Ave. in the Town of Vernon, and will reopen sometime next
month as “Troy’s Heaven City Supper Club.”
Heaven City property owner Ralph Hibbard said a lease issue with the
building’s previous tenant prompted him to find another tenant to
occupy the building and keep the restaurant running. Heaven City has
been closed since early August.
who has owned the Lakeside for 16 years, said he received an offer
and took over the location in September.
“We are going to
bring the Lakeside quality and standards over here and we are going
to make this into more of a supper club,” he said.
The Lakeside will
remain open during its regular 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. hours throughout
this week, serving its full menu.
the new restaurant’s menu will keep some of the Italian dishes from
the Lakeside, but will also feature steak, ribs, chops and seafood -
including a fish boil.
The site, he said,
is larger than the Lakeside’s current location and will give him
more room to expand going forward.
“It is an
adventure,” he said. “We are very busy trying to put things
together. It is a little sad shutting down the Lakeside, but it is a
good move for us.”
No date has been
set for the restaurant’s grand opening, but Schoenrock said there
will be a pre-opening Halloween event at 5 p.m. Oct. 31. The
Spooktacular at Heaven City will feature live music, a bonfire, a
costume contest and a haunted trail walk, with proceeds going to the
Mukwonago Food Pantry.
his Heaven City Supper Club will be a totally unique restaurant.
“We are looking
forward to bringing a new supper club out in the area. There is
nothing like it, what we plan on doing,” he said. “We have a lot of
big plans for it.”
