Billy Corgan opened the door to his Chicago, Illinois tea shop on Thursday with an acoustic set for fans.
Madame ZuZu's opened in Highland Park and the famous owner treated his first customers to a short set of Pumpkins hits.
He told the 50-plus tea and coffee drinkers, "It's an exciting day. This has been a labour of love."
Corgan has styled the new cafe on what he thinks a Chinese tea house would have looked like in 1930s Paris - and he has high hopes for the little place, telling Rolling Stone magazine, "I want it to be a social hub that's interactive. You're trying to draw in different people from different walks of life. We want a dynamic in there. We don't want a passive space.
