The Armory is proudly owned and operated by two local Sonora families. Jenn and Doug Edwards, along with Rebecca and Jordan Barrows, took ownership of the iconic building in Spring 2022. 


Originally owned by Tracie and Doug Kennedy, the building was home to The Bourbon Barrel, which operated from 2015-2017. The Kennedys had an incredible vision for the space, and with support from many excellent local contractors, designed the build-out of the Bourbon Barrel, Beer Garden and Event Center.


"We are incredibly excited to open this beautiful building to the public! Our community has been waiting a long time to have dinner and a few drinks on the roof-top terrace, enjoy live music, and return to the Bourbon Barrel. Our goal is for the Armory to be an anchor for the community, a gathering space that offers people a chance to relax and socialize in a vibrant downtown atmosphere. We want to create jobs, serve great food, and add to the energy of downtown Sonora."
