Coming soon to downtown Utica, an outdoor seasonal bar.

The Utica Village Board of Trustees have approved a special use permit for the folks with Lodi Tap House to build an outdoor bar on what's now a parking lot on the southwest corner of Canal and Mill Streets. Utica Village President Dave Stewart says the bar would be tied to an existing brewery called Obscurity. Developers hope to open by the end of May.

Also dealing with downtown Utica, village leaders have agreed to block off Mill Street again this year for outdoor dining. This set up will go from May 8th until October 24th.
