Fuel Bar & Refuge

Fuel Bar + Refuge is a scratch kitchen & cocktail bar set in the former Bottema & Bolthouse Texaco gas station which served spring lake from around 1934 to 1970. Mr. John Bolthouse’s key to the Village of Spring Lake & closing Thank You letter to the community hang near the bar. In 1970 the Chan family opened & operated Chan’s Chinese restaurant until late 2016. The Chan’s original circular sign hangs in the window above the front door.

83 years, essentially two occupants, both providing fuel for the community – that’s kind of amazing. Adding to the building’s legacy, fuel stands for positivity, community, compassion, teamwork, celebration & simply figuring it out. pulling from these values, fuel is a refuge from the daily noise. Fuel up from simply prepared ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible.
