The Lounge

& Restaurant

Wine & Dine

In addition to the finest Victorian style accommodations available in Southern Illinois, the Mansion is the only hotel in the region that features an attached lounge serving the best selection of local beers and wines, as well as a restaurant.  The Levee Lounge serves hotel guests, but is also open weekends noon to midnight to the public - and for special events. The Fork N Cork Bistro shares the same availability as the lounge, and has a full menu. Tasty and filling, but simple fare with nothing over $10.


You have never been to a "pub" more cozy than the Mansion's Levee Lounge. Just a dozen seats (with room to spare most nights), candle-lit tables, interesting and exotic decor abound. Never loud, always good craic, we are not a main street bar, but a quaint hole-in-the-wall that you WILL love. With over 200 beers to choose from and over 1000 labels of wine, I guarantee we will have a special bottle of wine to your taste or a couple of fine beers you've yet to experience. 


Our venue offers a huge variety of hand-crafted, award winning wines from not only Illinois, but also the best from Indiana, Missouri and Kentucky micro-vineyards. Harvest season is a unique time at the mansion with SHRIMP FEST and Oktoberfest celebrations. This will be the opportunity to share the seasons best wines complimented with tantalizing artisan meats and cheeses. LIVE MUSIC ALL SUMMER LONG.  We succeed in bringing in the best of Nashville touring artists and local musical talent. Indoor and outdoor entertainment! The biergarten deck is very popular weather permitting. An excellent view of the levee (and if you're tall the Ohio R.) and a fine hangout. Our wine shop exhibits a wide array of gifts and specialty items. In addition, it is our pleasure to feature the area’s best jams, salsas, dips, and other culinary delights.
