Hometown success stories


Mississippi River Distilling Company & Celebration Center
Occupying two historic, riverside buildings along the main drag, the Mississippi River Distilling Company and Celebration Center have both been refurbished to provide a modern yet rustic feel to all visitors. The Cocktail House offers a menu of craft spirits with spectacular views of the Mighty Mississippi, while the Celebration Center provides plenty of space for weddings, parties, or corporate events with remnants of the original 1845 butcher building incorporated throughout.

The Blue Iguana Expansion Project

Inside a gorgeously restored, brick storefront, The Blue Iguana Mexican Cantina boasts authentic Mexican cuisine using fresh, local ingredients and specialized cocktails paired along with breathtaking vistas of the river. The refurbished interior of this historic 1800s building in the heart of LeClaire opens on both ends to patios that are perfectly suited for outdoor dining and drinks, offering a scenic panorama of the Mississippi River or historic Cody Road and Libations Lane. The Blue Iguana is still contributing to the growth of LeClaire as it plans to expand with a brand-new patio section occupying the location of the current Sneaky Pete’s Steakhouse building.
