Music, food and friends can collide in swinging speakeasy style at the Root Cellar Lounge in the lower level of FARMbloomington. This venue can host a variety of events for those desiring a slightly funky, unique, and definately fun atmosphere.

The space is creatively decorated with Chef Daniel's assortment of Americana, including an extensive beer can collection and a keepsake wine bottle display commemorating Orr family celebrations. Artist Gretchen Sigmund has created a mural for one wall with a scene that is no ordinary picnic!

The Root Cellar has several underground spaces available for private events: the Wine Cellar, Limestone Room, Parlor & Case Room.  The entire space may also be rented for larger cocktail parties and events. From Live Jazz & Blues Bands, DJ Dance parties, Karaoke, Rock & Roll Cover Bands & more, the Root Cellar offers a wide variety of entertainment that is available for special events.
