If they can get state licenses, two new bars are looking to open in new buildings on the outskirts of downtown.
The new additions come at the bottom of new construction under construction today.
The first is the Citizen at 33 S. 300 E. in Central City, Downtown. The second is one of many new additions on the way to the postal district.
Amid a slowdown in projects entering the queue, these new or expanding businesses show how buildings that were approved years ago are nearing completion and will begin to offer private and public spaces to the city in the near future.
Citizen – Downtown
It looks like Lotus will retain ownership of Citizen, a 1,120 square foot bar serving small plates, craft cocktails, beer and wine.
The bar will be at the bottom of an 80 apartment building which is almost complete.
It would include five outdoor tables overlooking 300 East, as well as a small indoor space inside the ground floor of the new building.
The site once housed a massage and skin care school.
Railroad Crossing – Post office district
Level Crossing Brewing plans to open its second locations at 550 S. 300 W., an area that has been dubbed the Post District.
The plan is essentially to duplicate the current offering, which includes wood-fired pizzas, sandwiches and salads as well as “heavy beer” (known in most other states simply as “beer”) , “draft beer” (known in most other states as “Utah beer”), wine and spirits.
Under state silly liquor laws, Level Crossing will seek to operate as a brewery until it can obtain a license from the state Department of Liquor Services/Control in the future in an environment that lacks such licenses.
The new bar will be largely the same as the existing one extracted from the production facility. It will have 82 seats inside and 72 outside.
