JARVIS—In January 2020, Luxe and Company opened as a multi-business facility; the former tavern was fully renovated to accommodate a cafe, yoga studio, MC’s Outback Takeout, and a variety of services including tattoo artistry, aesthetics and hair salons, massage, and more. On March 26 and 27, 2021 it became a gallery as well, showcasing the work of artist Svava Thordis Juliusson.
