A note from the president

This will be our final newsletter of the year, and I just want to send out a hearty and festive thank you to everyone in our community for making 2019 a fantastic year downtown Saint Paul.

We hope that the next few weeks will bring you rest, relaxation and some festive fun. There are some great suggestions below for ways to spend your time downtown as well an awesome list of new bars and restaurants you'll want to check out during time off. Plus, don't forget Destination Winter and the Union Depot Hub for the Holidays are still in full swing.

We'll be back in the new year, and we wish you all happy holidays and a wonderful new year.

See you all around (down)town,

Joe Spencer

Santa kindly let us know that the new Drury Plaza will be open by February.
Hotspots for your holiday guests
This time of year is definitely our favorite for going out with old friends, new friends, colleagues and family to celebrate the season. There's something so inviting about the decorations and festive spirit about town that makes it worth the bundling up to go out and grab a drink or a bite to eat after work. The Pioneer Press has a great round up of the newest hotspots to try this winter break. Some of them have just opened, some have all new menus and most are downtown.
