About Us.

Welcome to The Wagner House—Freeport and Stephenson County’s premier wine bar, wedding venue, event space, business collaborative, and lounge. Featuring The Great Debate Wine Bar, Swank & Mercier, The Green Room, and The Back Office, this historically-preserved urban oasis has everything you need to enjoy an incredible experience. Try us out, and you’ll find that The Wagner House is more than just a place—it’s a destination.

The first floor hosts The Great Debate, where you’ll find an extensive drink list (our wines and spirits are for sale!) and Swank & Mercier, a boutique for unique jewelry and apparel. The Back Office on the second floor is a rentable business center and lounge perfect for corporate events, small weddings, music, and entertainment. The Green Room is a unique event space ideal for live music, bridal and baby showers, weddings, and corporate events.
