Liquor License at Satellite!


We are thrilled to announce that we are now licensed to sell alcohol at Satellite. The liquor license, which we officially obtained on February 8th, makes The Satellite Cafe the smallest business to serve alcohol for consumption on premises in the state of Illinois.

In keeping with the our mission statement, alcohol offerings include a selection of locally-distilled liquors from Koval Distillery and a Two Brothers tap takeover featuring Pinball, Twenty-Plus, and Domaine DuPage. We'll also offer a selection of wines and sparkling wine. Cafe staff will craft well-known favorites 7 days a week, offering everything from old fashioneds and gimlets to mimosas and whiskey lattes.

Ownership is also in the process of rolling out a weekday happy hour from 4:30—5:30pm (effective Wednesday, February 28th) and specials for St. Patrick’s Day.

Tim will head a Beer-of-the-Month Club, slated to go live in April 2018. Each meeting will feature three beers and commentary from a representative of a local brewery. Membership will include a three-month pass, t-shirt, bottle opener, and branded pint glass. For more information, email
