CRAFT Beer Market Opening
The old Paramount Theatre in downtown Kelowna is set to re-open.
Thursday, June 28th CRAFT Beer Market will officially debut. The chain is based out of Calgary and has 7 locations in Canada, including 1 in Vancouver. CRAFT Beer Market is touting over 100 beers on tap and a rooftop patio that seats 200 people.
The plan to rework the old Paramount Theatre on Bernard Avenue has been in the works for 2 years, and construction started 5 months ago. The original Paramount sign was refurbished and the entrance and lobby feature reclaimed wood walls from the theatre.
“The Paramount Theatre was an important space for the community and we really wanted to incorporate some of its history into the design of the restaurant,” says PJ L’Heureux, Founder and President of CRAFT Beer Market. “Keeping the Paramount sign was a non-negotiable for us and the city was onboard with it and great to work with.”
