Next week, Samona McCann will officially open her second bar, ELV8, in the former Treats Tavern, 2221 N. Humboldt Blvd. McCann also operates  Milwaukee Nights Pub, 3830 W. National Ave.

ELV8 is a casual sports tavern in the front, with a pool table, darts, bar dice, TV screens and a jukebox. The back room is an intimate lounge, ideal for quieter evenings, anniversary celebrations and date nights.

Beverages will range from tap beer to champagne and signature cocktails, including an ELV8 Long Island and 44 North Huckleberry Cosmo.

The grand opening party takes place Monday, Dec. 27 at 7 p.m. ELV8 will also host a New Year's Eve party on Friday, Dec. 31.

“We have great bartenders, great vibes and a great location," says McCann. "And we're ready to celebrate."
