What’s in a name? SqWires is a handsome redesign of a 19th-century brick structure, part of a Victorian era factory complex. The former Western Wire manufacturing buildings, located on an entire city block in historic Lafayette Square, originally housed the American Bed Factory. In 2001, the complex was totally renovated & converted to house SqWires Restaurant, plus 80 business & residential lofts. The name SqWires combines its location in the Square & history of the Western Wire factory.

SqWires Annex & Front Room are perfect for your next event! Rehearsal dinners, weddings, receptions, holiday parties, business meetings – we would love to help you! Give us a call or email
