Our Story

Owner, John Imo is proud of his history that is deeply rooted in the community. John began his career at the young age of 7 bagging groceries and serving the customers in the community at Imo’s Market. Since 1997 he and his father, John Sr., co-owned and operated Grafton Inn Restaurant and Grafton Hall Banquet Center until early 2011.

In 2011 John and Jane Imo purchased Willy’s lounge, completely renovated it and named it Northside Bar & Grill. Seven years later, John and his staff are looking forward to continuing the tradition of operating their new concept with integrity and respect. So, whether you are planning a wedding or looking to enhance your backyard BBQ, Bar2U looks forward to showing you their handcrafted menu, hospitable service and exciting atmosphere.
