Well-known mixology spot Bradstreet Crafthouse will be moving out of its current downtown location in the Graves 601 Hotel and relocating to the space formerly belonging to Rye Deli at 1930 Hennepin Ave., reports the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
News broke late last week that Graves was selling the hotel to Loews Hotels & Resorts, but they are taking the Bradstreet brand with them. The Graves incarnation of the restaurant and bar will close at the end of June, and it will reopen in its new location in August.
According to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, the same chef and team will move to the new location, which may add the word "neighborhood" to its name. The larger kitchen will mean an expanded menu, and it will be open seven days a week, from 3:30 p.m. until close, with brunch on the weekends.
In the article, the Business Journal also points out that it's an "awkward" location with some "built-in challenges," like limited visibility and parking, that have affected prior restaurant tenants. (However, it is also located next to the wildly popular Burch Steak.) The Business Journal is running a reader poll, asking: "Can Bradstreet Craftshouse turn the Rye space into a moneymaker?"
