Fulton Brewery plans an outdoor patio
|Fulton plans to add some green space to its popular North Loop brewery|
The North Loop may fast be gaining a reputation as the premier food neighborhood in the Twin Cities, but for all the hot restaurants and chic cocktail bars, this area is a bit lacking when it comes to outdoor patios, especially those with some green space. Sure, there are a few tables scattered on the sidewalks outside Black Sheep and Bar La Grassa, and Smack Shack is promising to add patio seating once the weather warms, but this section of the Warehouse District is still largely industrial, so foliage and flowers are few and far between. In an effort to green up the North Loop landscape, Fulton Brewery is now aiming to add its own patio.
In addition to the patio, which will have landscaping designed by Tangletown Gardens, Fulton plans to expand its bike parking space, reports the Downtown Journal.
Plans for the patio were presented on Sunday night to the North Loop's Zoning Committee so it's still in the early stages, but Fulton's Chief Operating Officer Jim Diley tells the Hot Dish the brewery "hopes to have the patio completed by June 1."
