We lost our lease and shut down the award-winning Brooklyn shop in February of 2009. In the summer of 2009 I decided to give up the real estate madness of NYC and move to Mexico where my husband and I owned and operated our bar Casa Cóctel in La Paz, Baja California Sur until we discovered an amazing commercial property in Birmingham, Alabama that gave us hope for a new LeNell's.

Our newly acquired historic J.R. Copeland residence property will be home to an even bigger and better beverage boutique than we had in Brooklyn. Site development plans are underway for the new store located in the up-and-coming historic Norwood neighborhood right outside of downtown Birmingham. We look forward to providing a remarkable beverage shopping experience for you again soon! LeNell
