The Cafe's new home in Paristown Pointe is getting a serious face-lift
"Six months from now the Old Louisville Leather Company tannery building at 711-715 Brent St. will be home to the neighborhood's iconic The Cafe restaurant and a fixture in a new entertainment destination known as Paristown — but it’s getting some major work done ahead of the debut."
Tannery Building to get a lift as part of Paristown Pointe project
"Hydraulic jacks have been put into place over the past few weeks, and throughout the next several days, the structure will be raised, floor by floor, at 1/16 inch increments, or roughly about 5 inches per day."
They’re doing that using several hydraulic jacks, that slowly lift each floor five inches per day. It takes about two days for each floor to reach the proper height. “We are taking great care in revitalizing Paristown as an authentic place that brings people together to celebrate life, art, and community,” said Steve Smith, managing partner of Paristown.
Paristown to include Louisville’s first new brick street in more than a century
"Construction workers are in the process of repaving Brent Street with bricks, making it the first new brick road in Louisville in at least the last century – or so believes Steve Smith, who is the managing partner in the $28 million Paristown development. The point is to revive a little Louisville history."
$30 million renovation planned for Louisville's Paristown neighborhood
"The Old Forester's Paristown Hall will anchor this new Paristown Point on its quest to become an epicenter for entertainment. Developers say open container laws on the soon-to-be all brick street outside the venue will allow people to wander the block during outdoor parties and performances."
Paristown Pointe's The Cafe is moving ... but not very far
"The Café in Paristown Pointe — one of Louisville’s hidden restaurant gems — is about to get a little more visible. It's moving out from underneath its railroad trestle and across the street from a brand new entertainment venue."
The Café plans to relocate to Stoneware & Co. building in fall 2019
"The Café will move into the Stoneware & Co. building as part of the Paristown development, likely this fall. The eatery, which has been in operation since 1996 and in its spot 712 at Brent Street for more than a decade, will continue to operate as normal until renovations are complete at the Stoneware building."
