YEARS GONE BY
Flavors! is more than just a wine bar and event venue. We offer a wide selection of beers and a collection of classic and specialty cocktails. Hosted in the space that once housed the Sun Prairie Fire Department, the "Years Gone By Cocktail Lounge" holds special sentiment for the city and for all those who visit. With original floors, ceiling and bead board the room is easy to imagine days gone by. The room even boasts the original trap door leading to the water cistern still found in the basement today. This room begs for visitors and has seating for larger groups as well as more intimate seating for the perfect date night.
Sun Prairie Fire Department
"The early (fire) department proved to be a driving force in city politics. In only its fourth year (1895), the department organized a petition to build a new city hall. The building included in the basement a five hundred gallon cistern as a water source for use by the department. The department’s equipment was stored in the city hall after 1895."

The cocktail lounge is dedicated to Captain Cory Barr for his bravery and dedication to the city of Sun Prairie. Cory lost his life July 10, 2018 saving countless others in a downtown gas explosion that leveled an entire block of historic buildings and injured several citizens.
