A local distillery is now pouring cocktails at its new downtown Davenport location. Mississippi River Distilling Company in LeClaire “soft opened” the “Downtown Lounge” at 318 E. 2nd St. over the weekend. The public grand opening and ribbon cutting is set for 4 p.m. Friday, June 24.

The building houses the new cocktail bar and will also house a new state-of-the-art bottling line to help the distillery expand distribution.

“This is an exciting chance for us to leverage our growth in the larger market to add a vibrant spot to downtown Davenport,” owner Ryan Burchett said. “Having an existing brand and reputation from our space in LeClaire makes the new Davenport location an easy expansion for us.”

The distillery is maintaining all of its current operations in LeClaire with a production facility, cocktail house and recently opened Celebration Center event venue.

The Mississippi River Distilling Company Downtown Lounge will be open seven days a week.
