LEX 18 is proud to be part of Asheville’s prohibition era history. Established by John O’Donnell in 1904 as the Eureka Saloon, it was a hang-out of Thomas Wolfe’s father W.O. Wolfe.
In Thomas Wolfe’s renowned book, “Look Homeward Angel,” he recounts stories involving the saloon and saloonkeeper John O’Donnell. During Prohibition, from 1907 – 1922 the Eureka Saloon operated as speakeasy serving “milk” according to its historic accounting ledger.
The history and stories revolving around Lex 18 have helped revive a craze for classic and nouveau prohibition recipes incorporating Appalachian moonshine, fresh fruits and elixirs. Our fresh and local cuisine is a modern version of Southern Appalachian fine dinner fare served at the fancier restaurants of the 1920s.
