Coming this summer, one of St. Paul’s premier food & beverage districts will welcome an all-new concept, Seventh Street Truckyard, that aims to become one of the area’s go-to destinations for its fun and funky, take on food, booze and atmosphere—stockpiling the best of the great American road trip—and bringing it all indoors. Seventh Street Truckyard plans to open this August.
The great American road trip is what dreams are built upon, a quirky rite of passage that allows people to hit the open road, sit under the stars, get lost in an amazing soundtrack and experience the people, restaurants and bars that each city claims as “locals joints.” Seventh Street Truckyard is bring all of that, and a whole lot more, St. Paul this summer as part of its all-new concept, brought to life behind the creators of New Bohemia Wurst + Bierhaus.
“With Seventh Street Truckyard, we have combined all of the great American road trip memories into once location, while adding our own twists and turns along the way,” says COO Brian Ingram. “We will feature the cuisine often found on the open road including chicken, pizza, tacos, ribs and ice cream, all prepared and served out of an eclectic collection of classics including a 1976 Palm Beach Lime Green RV, 1975 Terry Travel Trailer, 1970 VW Bus, 1950 Gruman Olson Milk Truck and a 1979 Winnebago.”
The concept was brought to life by M5 Management, the parent company behind New Bohemia Wurst + Bierhaus, one of the fastest-growing and highly regarded concepts in the area. M5’s executive team traveled around the country, making it their mission to discover the fun, offbeat and slightly different restaurants and bars that make each city tick. In colloboration with locally based Shea Design, they are now bringing those experiences back to St. Paul.
“We have all these iconic, classic vehicles that we are retro-fitting to be full-service kitchens, campsite-style seating arrangements, live music, delicious food and cocktails, all presented within a really fun and welcoming atmosphere,” says Ingram. “We are attempting to recreate the ultimate, communal campsite for the people of St. Paul and Minneapolis and can’t wait to open our doors this summer.
