The Stuffed Olive ( held a ribbon cutting for their Grand Opening on January 10 at 1140 Capitol Ave. in the Downtown Capitol District. It is next door to Roxxy at 1150 Capitol Ave., which held their Ribbon Cutting at the same time.

The Stuffed Olive was originally founded in 2004 at the Blackhawk Hotel in Cedar Falls, IA. It began as a Martini Bar with a great menu featuring plenty of great concoctions to choose from. In 2005, tapas (small plates) were added to the menu and the martini menu continued to grow. The original Stuffed Olive enjoyed many good years at the Hotel but finally closed on January 1, 2019, to make way for hotel upgrades and renovations. It wasn’t long before it became known that it needed to be reopened as soon as possible. After months of planning and renovations, The Stuffed Olive re-opened in September of 2019 with a brand-new tapas menu and a polished martini menu.

Now, there are over 100 martinis to choose from and some of the best chef prepared food that the venues have offered. The new Stuffed Olive is full of soft leather seating in a modern, luxurious, yet minimalistic atmosphere. They often hear from guests that the Stuffed Olive is their favorite place and a much-needed place the Downtown was missing. They think it just might be yours too.
