Minneapolis Restaurant owner challenges infamous weather with retractable restaurant roof.
Recently Libart has been covered by CBS (see video below) for its unique open air restaurant retractable roof system on Union Restaurant in Minneapolis. The first among the city’s restaurants the Union now features a dining experience unlike no other, Union customers are able to enjoy the freedom of outdoor patio dining in the summer, and when the weather turns, protection of an sheltered solarium . The Libart business model is to achieve a hybrid of indoor and outdoor architectural solutions, thus a retractable glass roof cover for Union restaurant patio.
Even Travel and Leisure magazine rated it as a “place to watch” in their Hottest Travel Destinations of 2013!
Sales and patio cover construction of this one-of-a-kind unit was provided by our partners at Libart USA under the creative design provided by Shea Design in Minneapolis. Owner Tam Kalebi spoke to CBS about his new system boasting about our “indoor-outdoor experience” which only our highly trained engineers were able to provide him. “It opens up and closes up in a couple of minutes” the gleeful Kalebi told reporters “sort of like an accordion”. Libart not only focuses on commercial applications such as this restaurant’s metal patio cover but also has solutions for hospitality, residential and Industrial applications.
