A new restaurant is set to open in the former Gardski's Loft location (2009 Broadway), according to Lubbock in the Loop. The restaurant will be called Bier Haus and will continue to serve on the outdoor patio like Gardski's did. Bonus: there will be lawn games. The opening date is still TBA.

I loved Gardski's Loft and I was sad to see it go. It was a lovely and magical place to take a date. It was old-fashioned in all the best ways, with cozy nooks to sit in and enjoy their fabulous Bloody Marys.

Since there are no details yet, we can only speculate from the new place's name: Bier Haus. Bier Haus is German for, you guessed it, Beer House. Is Lubbock getting a downtown German restaurant? That's exciting. Of course, there has to be a focus on beer no matter the cuisine. Either way, I'm very happy to see that beautiful building come back to life.
