The Hammered Lamb has begun their two-month renovation. The Ivanhoe Village restaurant/bar will be renovating their outdoor patio, their kitchen, and their back offices over the next eight weeks.
The first phase of construction will transform the offices in the back part of the building into a walk-in cooler.
The second phase will be concentrated on the patio bar. The bar itself will be extended toward the train tracks and the new bar top will be much deeper than the current one (more room for plates), and given an artistic faux-granite texture of black and blue. The tile flooring will be removed and replaced with a new “poured” treatment of black and silver. The old built-in planters will also be removed and the bar footprint will be extended to the wall of their southern neighbor.
The third phase will focus on expanding the kitchen and storage area and sealing it off on one side from the inside bar.
Most construction will be isolated to three-day increments, Sunday through Wednesday, in order to limit disruptions in customer service.
The owner of Hammered Lamb, Jason Lambert, is hoping to conclude the renovation in April with a celebration of the bar’s third anniversary of being in business.
