Bohemian Cafe

The City Council voted to recommend a liquor license for a new taproom in the north section of the former Bohemian Cafe building at 1406 S. 13th St.

Beer will flow again in Little Bohemia.

The City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to recommend a liquor license for the Omaha Infusion Brewing Co.’s Little Bohemia Beer Hall.

Owner Bill Baburek said he plans to open the 2,000-square-foot taproom in the north section of the former Bohemian Cafe building, at 1406 S. 13th St., this fall.

“It will really depend on a lot of factors as far as permits and inspections,” Baburek said. “If everything comes together we could be opening in September.”

The taproom will host special events, including live music on weekends, and will periodically offer catered Bohemian dinners along with live polka music.

Infusion also plans to brew a new Czech Pilsner, exclusive to the taproom, to pay homage to the former restaurant and its owners, the Kapoun family.

Baburek said the neighborhood has been supportive of the renovation, and he feels a connection to his Czech roots.

“I grew up in the neighborhood. I’m Czech, I’m Bohemian so it’s really cool to go back and be a part of that neighborhood again,” Baburek said.

Infusion opened its first location in Benson in 2013. In 2016, Baburek opened a production brewery at 6271 S. 118th St.
