New bar with epic patio coming to 17th Ave this spring

Mar 30 2021, 11:38 am

The 730 17th Avenue SW address has been home to some iconic venues over the years (Melrose Cafe & Bar’s iconic patio and upscale French restaurant Royale have both lived at this spot). Now it looks like something new is coming to the space next month, by way of “modern nostalgia” restaurant, Porch.

“We’ll leave the light on,” invites Porch’s website, and the latest restaurant and bar concept to join the Red Mile sure sounds like it’s going to bring an eclectic and welcoming atmosphere to 17th Ave.

Fort Architecture is behind the design of Porch, and the company noted that the restaurant is going to “truly blur the lines between indoor and outdoor dining with one epic patio.”

According to Porch’s Facebook page, the venue will be opening this May, just in time for the weather to warm up for good (hopefully).

The new restaurant will be sandwiched between Clive Burger and Trolley 5, and if it’s anything as good as its neighbours, Porch is sure to be a popular spot.

We’re not sure what the eatery’s menu will look like just yet, but Porch’s website says that diners can expect “reimagined comfort foods, crushable cocktails, and a fun and fresh wine list.”

Sounds good to us.

Porch is set to be the perfect place to spend sunny days and warm summer evenings on 17th Ave this year, sipping on a drink, people watching and enjoying the open air.
