Sol Blu Lounge & Tap Room owner, Lee Formolo, offers up signature cocktails, unique brews, lively entertainment, and a few unusual surprises!
Housed in a historic building built by John R. Wood, the first president of the First National Bank, in 1891 out of native red sandstone from the North Side quarry, this building was originally a business block, then the Hotel Wood. In 1990 the property was sold to the City of Iron Mountain for use as a city hall, including the fire, police and water departments.
Some would say the building has great bones and a lot of character! The original bank vault serves as a storage room and adds a unique backdrop to the lounges performance stage.
The TapRoom blends modern and historic for a setting as surprising as what’s on tap!
Sol Blu was opened in May of 2010. After five years and a growing demand for expansion, they decided to buy and develop a TapRoom next door. So, after busting a hole thru the wall and some strategic development, they opened the TapRoom in June of 2015. Sol Blu and the TapRoom have been running strong ever since.
