First Parklets Being Installed at Grand Rapids Brewing Co. Today [Video]

Last month the Grand Rapids Downtown Development Authority approved a $40,000 grant to allow BarFly Ventures to install parklets in front of their restaurants Stella’s Lounge, Grand Rapids Brewing Co., and McFadden’s Saloon.

Today, the first of those parklets are being installed in front of the Grand Rapids Brewing Company.

A parklet, which first originated on the West coast, is a designated parking space that’s converted into an outdoor area.

BarFly has also requested approval from the city’s Planning Commission to expand food and alcohol permits to include those parklets.

I can’t wait to kick back and enjoy a nice cold brew outside!

Here’s how folks in Milwaukee reacted to their first parklet:
