New Openings: Bier Markt Mississauga
The highly anticipated Mississauga Bier Markt Square One is set to open its doors Wednesday, June 25. Bier Markt is a beer lover's hotspot that's renowned for many things, including the incredible selection of beers (or biers) from over 30 countries, a European-inspired made-from-scratch menu, year-round musical performances by live bands (often local) and wait list-worthy patios that fill up super fast!
My first interview with Bier Markt's operating partner, Robert Medal, took place seven months ago in November 2013. At that point, the resto was expected to open in April of this year, but the opening was delayed by permit and design difficulties. While the opening is two months late, it's well worth the wait!
The brand new Square One Bier Markt has opened up shop in what was once The Curve Cocktail Lounge and Kitchen. The space has been gutted and the remarkable transformation shows no remnants of what was there before. The 8,800 sq. ft. resto features decor that matches the European-inspired cuisine. The space has strong Belgian, French and German influences highlighted by deep colours and dark woods that give it a true European Brasserie atmosphere.
What is unique about this location compared to the others?
This location offers a Chef's Charcuterie Bar that’s tucked away behind the main dining area which provides guests with a semi-private 'chef's table experience' while seated in the charcuterie kitchen. It also houses a bier cellar and plans to host prestigious 'Vintage Bier Bottle' release parties in the future.
The Mississauga Bier Markt has a tree-lined patio that is large but cozy. It offers a two-tiered outdoor area that seats up to 200 guests. It also has a full service patio bar and a big screen TV.
The grand opening festivities will start with World Cup screenings on four big screen televisions and the 120" projection screen. Fittingly, Bier Markt offers a huge selection of over 170 brands of bier from over 30 countries -- that's almost every country playing in the World Cup!
Until July 13, soccer fans can purchase a half-litre of one of five world-class biers served in a fun glass boot for only $6. The five biers featured in this promotion include Steigl Radler, Steam Whistle, Hoegaarden, Stella Artois and Somersby Apple Cider.
What kind of music does the Bier Markt play?
Thursdays: Live local band
Fridays & Saturdays: Live Top 40, Rock & Funk
Sundays: Rock N' Roll Brunch
What is up and coming?
Bier Markt will be hosting Canada Day long weekend celebrations from June 26 - June 29 with live bands featured on the full sound stage and on June 28 & 29, there will be a Rock n' Roll Brunch featuring live acoustic music with a Brasserie-inspired brunch menu.
Number of seats: 200+ inside, and 200 on the patio
