THE BEST LAID PLANS
After a lot of careful planning and creative thinking, the Shiefelbeins, Henrys and Grabers opened the Waxhaw Tap House in May of 2020. The family spent a lot of time together at family cookouts and barbeques, and wanted to create an atmosphere of family oriented fun for the whole town.
They decided to expand and repurpose the pottery studio into a tap room with connected outdoor spaces. Making use of the spaces behind the building and a patio with tables in front, the atmosphere feels like you're hanging out with neighbors on the deck or in an amazing back yard.
Cornhole tournaments, a food truck, live entertainment and a firepit are points of focus outside. Inside there is a bar, high top tables, and low tables for dining, along with dart games and frequent live music events. Stewart's Gallery, Waxhaw's favorite place to buy art and find unique gifts, is the next door neighbor.
