The owner has told me July. But they have also had a lot of delays so it could be later but hopefully it is open for summer.

Both doors are for Famoso, plus they have an interior entrance in the lobby. They will also have a patio on 12th.

There is nothing going on in Tower I. HSBC is still there. There are vacancies on Scarth where the former convenience store was located as well as the former CP Presentation Centre.

Lot Club appear to be ready to open. Probably a soft, private opening this weekend. https://www.facebook.com/lotclub

My sister was hired to be one of the servers there. It sounds like it's going to be a very nice place with great bartenders. It's a place to go for drinks only - no food will be served. One of their signature drinks is going to be a Kentucky Bourbon Caesar made with crushed Doritos around the rim instead of salt. :yes: They're going for a downtown, big-city vibe as a place for business people to go for a drink after work and socialize or as a place to hang out with friends with top notch drinks and good music.

I think you can request an invitation to their soft opening through their Facebook page if you're interested.

Stormer May 9, 2015 4:50 PM

Lot Club on Albert opened last night. The also have Food Truck Fridays featuring a different food truck each week in their parking lot.

The Capitol Jazz Club has had a soft opening. Official opening is this coming weekend. They have a new sign that pays homage to the former Capitol Theatre.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm not a jazz person... at all... but this place is looking so interesting/exciting that I might just have to check it out anyway. :yes:

Devon May 20, 2015 7:30 AM

I'm assuming the white portion is backlit as well? Curious to see it at night. The Loggies sign seems out of place now as well. Wouldn't want it gone per se, but it's definitely in a strange spot.

Pretty sure the Loggies sign will be coming down. That was probably another guy's job. The wall it is on is in bad shape and needs painting anyway.

Edit: Loggies sign is already down.

Stormer May 20, 2015 5:48 PM

I just heard that there are a couple more chains looking to set up on the Dewdney Strip. One is Hudson's. Not sure of the other just yet.

Stormer May 20, 2015 6:23 PM

from Famoso's FB page:

Famoso Hill Centre is proud to be joining the Rebellion. We will be teaming up with Rebellion Brewery to provide our customers with two of their fantastic products in our exclusive to Famoso Hill Centre glassware. A sneak peek of that glassware to come. Keep watching.

Cantebury Gardens
 
It looks like there are some new businesses going in the cantebury gardens first building on Broad Street. There is a sign for a Jeweller beside the Subway place and there is some work happening in one of the vacant spots along the north side of the building going on. Anyone know what's going in there?

one_brick_at_a_time May 22, 2015 9:23 PM

It's so wonderful to see all these new businesses opening up, and it will only further make other people want to open more businesses too. So exciting!!!

Is there a tax incentive or something (I can't remember if I have asked this before or if it has been answered) for downtown buildings and businesses now to open street front retail/commercial space in buildings that currently are not active in ground floor use?

Stormer May 28, 2015 1:21 AM

Fat Badger has a new patio on the FW Hill Mall. Also I noticed that Taste of Tuscany's patio across the street was very busy tonight. Good to see.

I think I've mentioned it before, but its really turning into a restaurant alley of sorts. Would be amazing for the city (or the business together) put up a sort of unified look with some patios all going to the planters. Huge potential there for something really special.

Patios on FW Mall:

Beer Bros, Gilmours, Pita Queen, Taste of Tuscany, Good Earth, Fat Badger, Chopped Leaf. Famoso will be opening soon just around the corner.

Number of patios on the Plaza: 0

This disappoints me. I was in Berlin two weeks ago, and every restaurant that could had patios. Every one. The weather is no different than it is here, although there are fewer pests, specifically mosquitos.

Well you have to have restaurants before you have patios. At least there are food trucks on the Plaza. There are 3 there so far today.

Stormer Jun 17, 2015 4:47 PM

Unfortunately Michi on Scarth has closed. Hopefully another great restaurant replaces it. Michi had great sushi but there was something missing that I can't put my finger on.

It is great location with an existing heated patio.

Famoso is at least 6 weeks from opening, as is Malt City.

Farmers market. They need to be in before the market opens.

That's too bad about Michi. It was a good option. My wife tried Capitol last night with some friends and said it was a decent deal for variety ($20 for a couple of small appetizers and a half-desert). Also said it was very busy. Good to see on a Tuesday. Said the cod cakes were quite good. The salad was okay.

Dewdney may be outside what we call Downtown, but I understand that Bobby's Place Old World Tavern (from Moose Jaw) will be opening in the former Pure building. Also Hudson's will be opening up in the former New Yorx, etc.

Been to Bobby's a couple of times - good stuff, nice atmosphere.

Not a fan of chain pubs (Hudson's, Prime Pubs (Fionn McCools, et al), Canadian Brewhouse, etc) - but pub/restaurant/entertainment development along the Dewdney strip is generally a good thing, IMHO.

:cheers: IMHO, Dewdney needs more places like Bushwakkers and less places like Gabbos. But maybe that's just because I'm old now...

New Yorx was a nightclub/lounge/restaurant at 2300 Dewdney Avenue. Most recently it was (or still is) Eldorado Country Rock Bar.

Famoso's patio is being installed today. it looks like it will be semi circular and permanent. Inside is finally coming along. Much of the finishing is complete and as you can see coolers have arrived.

Bleh, another restaurant going on Vic East. Maybe one of their additional franchises could go downtown.... Wishful thinking though, I'm guessing the rest of them will be in Alberta.

Fuddruckers has a well-known name though, so they might be able to make a go of it in that mess/overserved area of the city.

jigglysquishy Jul 18, 2015 12:58 PM

The Saskatoon Fuddruckers has gone downhill so fast in the last five years. Maybe I had an affinity for it back in the day because I was young, but I can't even be bothered to go there anymore.

Really hoping that's because it was independent and the chain itself is better.

I've been referring to the east end as The Frozen Yogurt District for a while now...

I think Fuddruckers will challenge my name - the east end might now be The Hamburger District (Five Guys; Fatburger; Fuddruckers; Carl's Jr.; plus the usual fast food burger joints)

Fuddruckers has never been good, it is fueled solely on nostalgia.

The "Frozen Yogurt District" lost Tutti Frutti on Quance.

Maybe you intentionally overlooked Burger Baron.
