Houdini's Escape Gastropub opens today in Appleton, Wisconsin. The restaurant and bar is located at 1216 S. Oneida St., and celebrates Appleton's favorite adopted son with posters on the walls and images on the menu.
"Houdini is a cool celebrity," said manager Joshuah Woltman. "He appeals to every age and demographic. We wanted to create a place that accepts every single demographic. It’s a place where they can escape from a bad day."
Houdini's Escape Gastropub is owned by Linda Mischler and a silent partner. Chef Bert Cooper organized the menu. The restaurant serves from 11 a.m. to midnight every day. A website (www.houdinisescape.com) is under construction.
