Herman's Hideaway debuting new patio this weekend

Herman's Hideaway, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and thirty years of live music this year, is debuting a new patio tonight at the Railbenders show. Mike Roth, the venue's co-owner, says they're still putting the finishing touches on the open-air patio, but it will be completely functional starting this weekend.

"We just wanted to build a place where people could go and have drinks," Roth says, "and have an alternative to just the main room. We're trying to make the place a little more dynamic, and get it open a little more. It's just unbelievable how much light comes in now and how much of an open space it is. It's all glass. Half of it's a glass garage door."

Roth says that removed the coat check and two booths that were being used as an overflow area for band equipment. There are also plans for a massive projection TV on the wall, as it's fourteen feet from ceiling to floor, and a fireplace.
