Sluggo’s Bloody Mary

Once upon a time in a town called Brookfield, there used to be a bar called Sluggo’s.

While Sluggo’s had it’s share of regulars, one day in 2012, Sluggo’s was sold and became Ella’s Barstaurant. Ella’s was known for their $3 Build Your Own Bloody Bar on Sundays, featuring Bloodies that could look like this:

imageOne day not more than a year later, Ella’s closed and became Sluggo’s once again.

Somewhat confusing, I know.

Anyway, I went to Sluggo’s today to check it out (again) and, much to my chagrin, realized the $3 Bloody Special was not carried over. Here’s what the Bloody I got looked like:


Let’s check out the stats:

Spice: It had a little kick to it.

Mix: I believe they still use Sacramento (yay!)

Chaser: None offered.

Fixin’s:Pickle and two olives

Price: $5

Pretty darn disappointing when you go craving the first photo above now, wouldn’t you think?

It is my understanding that the original owner of Sluggo’s and owner of the building had sold the business a few years ago. Then, Ella’s took over the business aspect. When Ella’s closed up, the original owner (who still owns the building) re-opened Sluggo’s. (Again, confusing, I know). Anyway, much of the staff remains in place, including the main bartender; I spoke with him today and he tells me that he hopes to bring the Bloody Mary special back for Packers games this fall. I hope they do because if so, I will be back. If not, it’s onward!

PS- Slightly off-topic, but Sluggo’s used to be known for giant pretzels as well. The new menu features pretzel bites, but they managed to whip these up for us upon request. Let’s hope these find themselves back on the menu along with the BYO Bloodies!
