"I was walking down the street tonight and saw your cafe. It was already closed. I stopped dead. I couldn't believe it. Your cafe looked just like the place I'd spent many a night while I was a law student at the U [of Minnesota] in the late 90s in Minneapolis. I started jumping up and down and telling my husband about the hours I'd spent listening to music, smoking ( indoors! ), and drinking red wine at a place that felt like a lush architectural ruin. Then I went to your website when I got home only to find out it was the SAME Loring! That is so amazing. Some of the best memories of my young adult life were there. I'll be by for a drink soon."

The Loring Design and Build Guild has been laying crooked bricks for Jason McLean productions since ’86. Using a variety of support mechanisms, the walls and arches are suspended in unlikely ways and topped with finishes and a few treasures. We think of the brickwork as one of the signature features of Loring venues, contributing to their whimsy and magic just as much as anything.
