Knoebel Completes Construction of $2M Restaurant in St. Louis
ST. LOUIS — Knoebel Construction has completed construction of the new $2 million HopCat restaurant and craft beer bar in St. Louis’ Delmar Loop, which is an entertainment and dining district. The 8,580-square-foot restaurant features seating for 245 guests, a draft bar and outdoor beer garden. The project consisted of renovating the existing building while preserving as much of the original structure as possible, including wood beams and exposed brick. Knoebel rebuilt the entire roof structure, upgraded all utilities and removed windows on the second floor in order to install commercial kitchen equipment. BarFly Ventures was the project developer and Cuhaci & Peterson was the architect. HopCat now has 17 locations across the country.
