The new, modern Phantom Canyon

So, true to its word and timeline prediction, Phantom Canyon Brewing Co. did reopen in mid February — on the 16th to be exact. 

The big kitchen renovation, of course, isn't on display, but the dining room immediately looks and feels different upon entry, where the hostess stand is now on your right. 

As you'll see in the photos below, all the furniture is new, and the color palette has largely shifted from the warm burgundy and tungsten hue to a cooler grey and blue, offset by bright red upholstery. Gone is the that cozy old brewpub feel; in it's place is a new industrial, modern, loft-like dining room. 

Most odd — and, to me, out of place — are a bunch of glowing orbs strung from the ceiling, displaying various geometric textures. On their own they're neat and hypnotic. But they kind of feel like an IKEA buy better fit for a bedroom, or maybe an Asian fusion spot ... Nothing other than the carbonation bubbles in the beer seem to make them fit thematically, and even that's a stretch.

OK, I could go on, but you get the point. See for yourself, and if you're wondering about a new menu to match the new digs, I'm told it should come out around April.
