During the fall of 2014 Nancy Prior and Adam Moser were looking for a car to buy for an art project that required a vehicle. After calling the number on the for sale sign of a 1964 Ford Ranchero the car's owner, Karen Harding (owner of Cup & Saucer) convinced the two to forget the car and to take over her bar (then Proof). 

Given two weeks to come up with a concept for the space Prior and Moser decided to create a bar that not only served up great drinks but site specific interactive art projects.

Opened January 2015, LIKEWISE exists to support artists and their practice. This support comes in a number of ways but primarily LIKEWISE supports artists and their projects through the first ever Bartender in Residency Program - a twist on the traditional art world residency model that employs artists as bartenders who simultaneously implement participatory, socially engaging art works.
