WICHITA — Melad Stephan is growing his Old Town empire, literally and figuratively.
“We’re really going to attack the catering big time,” he says.
In the front of that space, which is at 233 N. Mosley, Stephan is putting in a bar called Revolution Rock Bar.
The building isn’t as visible as some restaurants in Old Town.
“It’s more like a bar-hopping place,” Stephan says of that area. “By putting a bar in there, it fits right in there with the other bars.”
Unlike Stephan’s Oeno Wine Bar in Old Town Square, which caters to an age 30-and-up crowd, Revolution will cater to a younger set.
“We’re going to do some exciting things in the front of the building to attract people in,” Stephan says. “We’re going to play music from the ’80s and things like that.”
He’ll have a DJ and show music videos on the wall.
The bar should open by early October.
Stephan hopes to open at the Eaton by early September.
