about us


our story

Located in the heart of Janesville’s downtown, drafthouse, is a fun, high-energy downtown gastropub that celebrates the richness of American culture through its appetizing and progressive bar fare. Both the restaurant philosophy and menu offerings draw heavily from two barroom staples: beer and spirits.

drafthouse is the downtown place-to-be for locals and tourists alike. Set in a warm modernist design, the restaurant and bar supports Wisconsin's brewing community with 24 beers on tap from the state's best breweries. (The bar is also fully stocked to suit any other distinguishing palate.) The abundant windows show off the interior space to the downtowns successful relaunch. And, rooted in the idea that we are indeed a community, four large communal tables foster a sense of gathering where deliciously innovative food, conversation and drink can be shared amongst friends and neighbors.

We hope to see you here soon,
