Denver’s “Best Brunch and Dinner” is coming to Minneapolis.

Bacon Social House will open a 3,000 square foot restaurant at 700 S 3rd Street on the ground floor of the recently completed Canopy by Hilton hotel. The restaurant currently has one location in Denver and in 2019 is set to open two other locations in addition to the Minneapolis location, both of which will be in Colorado.

The eatery and bar has been given numerous awards and in 2018 was given “Westword’s Best of Denver” award along with Trip Advisor’s “Certificate of Excellence” and OpenTable’s “Diner’s Choice Award.”

 The menus consist of food that is prepared from scratch every day and made with local and organic ingredients whenever possible. The Brunch menu features pretty much everything one could wish for including eggs benedict, biscuits and gravy, chicken & waffles and more. The dinner menu is also pretty great featuring items like shrimp n grits, burgers, Cuban sandwiches and buffalo cauliflower just to name a few.

Last but not least, Bacon Social House has two extensive drink menus for both brunch and dinner. Those menus are filled with a number of different cocktails, beer, margaritas and even mimosas that you can order by the “super carafe.”

Oh yeah, and we forgot to mention that you’ll be seeing a lot of bacon entrees scattered about the menu too. Let’s be honest, the place does have bacon in its name after all.

Bacon Social House is expected to open in May at 700 S 3rd Street.

It's big news for Sherman Associate's latest project as the Thresher Square Canopy by Hilton will be the first location for the brand within the Midwest. Once open the hotel will be the 7th Hilton property in Downtown Minneapolis and the 9th property within Minneapolis.

While the historic Thresher Square building is being renovated, Sherman Associates is also constructing a seven story mixed-use building next door called "East End". That building will be home to 180 market-rate apartments along with ground floor retail. Trader Joe's will call most of that ground floor home while Jimmy John's will open a location in a retail space at the back of the building.

ABOUT CANOPY BY HILTON

A new customer is here; The Millennials.

The hospitality industry is changing at a rapid pace as hotel brands race to re-brand themselves and appeal to a new industry and customer. Whether that be the rebranding of well established brands such as Hilton's Embassy Suites or the creation of entirely new hotel concepts such as Hilton's Canopy by Hilton, the hotel industry is taking notice and responding quickly.

Canopy by Hilton bills itself as an "energizing new hotel in the neighborhood." Their boutique styled hotels are filled with extras and surprises.

Upon arrival guests are given a "Welcome Treat" which often is a local sweet of some type. Check-in is available in person at a desk or also on your mobile phone. The lobby is designed for lingering, wandering, and meeting new friends.

Breakfast in on the hotel, whether that be in your room or in their cafe. Same with basic wi-fi, it's all free. Guests also can come down to the lobby each night for a sampling of the areas best beers, wines, and spirits complimentary of the hotel.

The guest rooms feature a split room design with a sliding barn door separating the spaces. The over all design is a new take on modern/traditional with eclectic pieces of furniture such as lounge chairs, side tables and desks along with of course a luxurious bed. Take a look for yourself here.

While exploring the hotel further guests will notice the attention to detail, more importantly the attention to local details. Canopy by Hilton properties take design cues from the surrounding neighborhoods. The Downtown Minneapolis location for instance will highlight the local Mill District vibe with an industrial chic look. 

Canopy by Hilton plans to open in Minneapolis in January 2018 before US Bank Stadium hosts the Super Bowl.
