Design review committee doesn't vote on Whistle and Keg patio


The city’s Design Review Committee declined to vote today on a proposal from the Whistle and Keg for an aluminum patio structure outside the downtown bar.

Michael Thomas, who co-owns the business with his brother Joseph, said the Whistle and Keg at 101 W. Federal St. is the only downtown bar/restaurant without an outdoor patio and they wanted to have what the other establishments have.

But the committee chose to instead ask Thomas that he install an outdoor patio with a more sturdy material such as wood or wrought iron because the other patios downtown made of aluminum are falling apart.

Thomas agreed to come back to the committee as early as next month with a different material, likely wood, for the patio.
