One Red Door closing, another to open

Cheryl Schweizer/Columbia Basin Herald The Red Door Cafe will be expanding this spring.

MOSES LAKE — The original Red Door curio and antique shop is closing. The Red Door Cafe will remain open, and even expand.

The curio shop closes Saturday, said co-owner Jan Thacker. “We’re going to miss the little store,” she said, which sold antiques and collectibles, jewelry and artworks. “It’s been a lot of fun.”

But “it’s time to move on.” Thacker is an artist and author. “I have two books that are half-done and I haven’t touched them in a year. I hope the characters remember who I am.”

The space won’t be empty, however. Red Door Cafe has obtained a beer and wine license and its owners will convert the space into a bar – but with a twist.

The Red Door Boardroom will feature board games for patrons to play and a TV dedicated to video games, Thacker said. The bar will also be showing old movies. The goal is to give people another option for an evening’s entertainment, she said. The board game café has proved popular in Europe and is making its way to North America, she said.

The menu expands too. The cafe (and the bar) will serve pizza; along with the classic options, the cafe will convert its panini sandwiches to pizza (including roast beef and barbecue pork).

The opening date will be announced, with the goal of opening the space by spring. Thacker said the space will be repainted and the bar installed.

The cafe has changed its operating hours. The cafe will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday.
