Bar owner creates beach getaway in downtown St. Charles

When Dawn Humer first entered the bar business, it wasn't a place for women, said the owner of Dawn's Beach Hut. "No one would give me the time of day because I wasn't a man," Humer said. "I had all this experience tending bar, and finally I met a woman who sold her bar to me and she was the first person who would even talk to me."

That was decades ago, when she worked three jobs to save enough money for the purchase. It was the beginning of Humer's entrepreneurism. Over the past two decades, she's owned and managed four other bars: Dawn's Beginnings in Arlington Heights; Dawn's Saloon & Eatery in Kildeer; and Dawn's Reef and Dawn's Club Tropic, both in Schaumburg.
