SLO Brew reopens downtown as an event venue rather than a bar

SLO Brew has reopened its central facility as an event venue, rather than a bar and restaurant – an apparent strategy to bypass COVID-19 restrictions.

In 1988, SLO Brew opened in downtown San Luis Obispo on Garden Street. In recent years, the company has moved its downtown location to Higuera Street and renamed it The Carrisa by SLO Brew.

Following the initial California stay-at-home order, SLO Brew has temporarily closed The Carrisa. Then, in February 2021, the bar and restaurant closed for good, in large part due to restrictions imposed on businesses by coronaviruses. The SLO Brew Lofts, located above the bar and restaurant, remained open for short-term rentals.

At the time, co-owner Hamish Marshall said he decided to consolidate his resources and focus on the location of SLO Brew Rock near the San Luis Obispo airport, as well as the Rod & Hammer distillery. .

Recently, SLO Brew reopened The Carrisa, promoting it as a “late night luxury” location in downtown SLO for private and vacation parties, weddings, receptions and corporate events.

“The Carrisa is available until 2 am, the last of all places in San Luis Obispo, its website says. “Party with your loved ones without having to adhere to the strict 10pm curfew that other sites on the central coast must adhere to. “

Each event booked at the Carrisa includes a full bar, the venue’s Facebook page says.

Although the place now hosts private and corporate events, The Carrisa opens its bar to the public on Thursday evenings for “Thirst Thursdays”, from 10pm to 2am. Students and partygoers, aged 21 and over, are welcome.

In addition, The Carrisa is having a Halloween party on Thursday evenings from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Entrance is free before 10 p.m.
