COMING SOON: Sips + Seating in the Sun at The Forks

Posted on Apr 24, 2019 by The Forks Market

The weather is warming up, we're preparing to invite patio-lovers to enjoy our brand-new, licensed outdoor seating area this summer.

We know patio season in Winnipeg is a sacred thing and we're never content to do anything in an ordinary way - this is an outdoor area for dining and socializing like none other in the city, plus The Common is expanding outside in time for this summer.

What's great about it?

  • The entire upper Plaza area, including the Canopy, will be licensed - you'll be able to grab a drink inside or outside and wander both spaces freely.
  • The full Common menu, the same twenty beers and wines will be available at a uniquely designed bar just off The Forks Market atrium. All beers and wines are curated quarterly by a Canadian sommelier.
  • 250 communal seats will welcome visitors to sit and enjoy the view while enjoying their beer, wine or food from The Forks. As with inside, the design and quality of materials is high.
  • Just like the rest of The Forks Market seating, guests can simply sit and enjoy the view. A purchase is not required to enjoy the space.

Lighting, firepits and music will round out the vibe for an exceptional experience. 

Construction is happening now, and will be completed in time for many beverages, food and experiences to happen this summer - we can't wait for you to #MeetMeAtTheForks this summer!
