Innisfree started with one idea in mind: We wanted our own place to drink with our friends. So, in December of 97 after being turned down by 4 banks and our heads hanging low we went to a fifth. You know the old saying, the fifth time was a charm? With the very little money we got we started construction. Blowing through our money we had no choice but to open, so we opened the doors in May 98 with the change in our pockets to fill the first register.
