Billy Corgan Reopens Madame ZuZu’s Tea Shop


Two years ago, Billy Corgan closed Madame ZuZu’s Tea Shop And Art Studio, which he opened back in 2012, because the space it had been occupying was too small. Earlier this month, Corgan and his partner Chloe Mendel reopened the shop at a new location in Highland Park, IL.

As Eater reports, the shop opened over Labor Day weekend for takeout and outdoor dining. The menu, naturally, features a lot of teas, as well as mostly gluten-free vegan food. Corgan occasionally performed and hosted events at the old tea shop, and the new location is also equipped for performances, though not until pandemic restrictions are lifted.

A couple weeks ago, Corgan announced a new Smashing Pumpkins album and shared two new tracks.
