At first glance, Ford’s Gathering wine and
craft beer bar is indistinguishable from its persona with Wisconsin Special
Properties LLC main office, Profit Protection Advisors, Snow Law, Thomas J. Ward Insurance, Greg Ott Sterns Lending, Shawna Czoschke Caliber Lending located on the second floor.
As you walk through the door of Ford’s
Gathering you are welcomed by its thoughtful interior design with
tourist-titillating vintage tat that celebrates and honors Princeton’s deep
historical roots. Almost inaudibly, R&B
and Big Band music nag on in the background while, on one wall, a 70’ Long
Sepia tone artesian mural by local renowned artist Ms. Robin Wallenfang relays the
history of Princeton dating back to the late 1800’s. One-of-a-kind repurposed and handcrafted
furniture by local restoration artist, Chad McFarland of Misfit Salvage adorns
the space and is available to purchase while supplies last.
This welcoming gathering space has one crucial
thing going in its favor: it is run by Rick and Rochelle Ford, for whom Princeton
has been home since 1996. Community
comes first for the Ford’s and it shows when you get hungry – tasty notions
from neighboring businesses such as Horseradish, Pizza
Factory, Buckhorn, and Blue Moon Café all deliver here, as they are just down
Ford’s Gathering Place features a selection of
hand crafted beers, a fun filled wine selection (you get to pull a bottle from
the wall), the full Deep Eddy Infused Vodka collection along with various other
high end spirits. All spirits are
available for $5, and cash-and-carry bottles of wine for $25.
Downtown Princeton comes to life again every
Saturday afternoon with live music from 1-3 pm, snacks on the bar and year round beautiful outdoor
covered patio seating with breathtaking views of the Fox River. This is one of
the newest hot spots in growing downtown Princeton, and with its friendly
staff, comfortable seating and free Wi-Fi it guarantees that each visit to
Ford’s Gathering is sure to be a great and memorable one.
Come gather with us and enjoy fine spirits, delectable local food and
the camaraderie of the Princeton, Wisconsin community.
