This spring, Meg Margjeka will be opening her third location of Etc at the 186 Building in West Homewood. The Margjeka’s are no strangers to the 186 Buildingβ€”in fact, Meg’s husband Armand announced his plan to launch his new concept, Buka, at the 186 Building.

Armand Margjeka previously owned the beloved Woodlawn Cycle Cafe, which closed in summer 2020.

The duo will be working together on the design of Meg’s newest Etc location, which will be next-door to Buka at the 186 Building.

“I was thrilled that both Meg and Armand choose the 186 Building in West Homewood as they both have shown their respective businesses enhance the neighborhoods that they are apart. I believe both Etc. and Buka will continue to add to the development of West Homewood by providing an exciting walkable destination. Spring 2021 should be an exciting time in West Homewood.”
