Copper Kettle Expands Their Copper Collection
During a summer-long renovation, the Copper Kettle is finally done with its renovation.

If you have yet to notice, The Copper Kettle has been renovated! Still located on 12th and P, The Copper Kettle and Talon Room completed their new look last week.
Offering over 20 mule options, The Copper Kettle's menu has stayed the same; it's the interior that tells a new story.
A fresh coat of blue paint and refurbishing the historical "Prescriptions" sign above the bar adds to the industrial art deco aesthetic.
More copper artifacts can be found throughout the restaurant, including China cases full of copper trinkets - often donated by customers or others.
"A lot of what you see was donated to us," Matthew Rogge said. "People will stop by and say 'hey I found this at an antique store' and that's how we got a lot of our collection."
The owners of Copper Kettle have slowly been accumulating copper items for just this reason.
"We're very thankful for people thinking of us when finding new things," Rogge said.
Downstairs, The Talon Room has also received a small renovation including five TVs and a new bachelorette suite.
The bar holds a piece of Lincoln's history. The bar top is made of old Spaghetti Works tables that the owners of Copper Kettle saved in storage for a special project.
The Copper Kettle is open Tuesday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to midnight.
