Summer has sprouted a few new businesses around Winter Park, and seen a growth spurt in others.  Here’s this month’s round up of Winter Park business news.

Volario’s at Vasquez Creek Inn
The good folks at Devil’s Thumb are ready to showcase their great taste in food and dining  at the soft opening of Volario’s this August 15th.

With a full remodel of both restaurant and menu, we will officially bid a fond farewell to one of Winter Park’s old time favorites (Gasthaus Eichler), and a big ‘Hello’ to what will surely become the hot new ticket in town.

Serving a full menu of Meditteranean delights from 4pm daily, Volario’s will be offering apres ski antipasta, stone baked pizzettas, traditional Meditteranean entrees, and a special menu bambini for the little ‘uns.

Price point wise, it’s also a big thumbs up.  Antipasta plates will go from $4-14, Pizzettas from $13-16, and Entres from $25-29; and anyone who has sampled the Ranch House Restaurant at Devils Thumb, knows that you can expect a very high standard of food & service for those prices.

All Decked Out At Da Vinci
Diners are now soaking up the sun, along with the stellar views on the new sun deck at Da Vinci in Cooper Creek Square.

Extending its cool vibe outdoors has been a major project for Da Vinci, and a nice little face lift for the external north face of downtown’s favorite mall.

We highly recommend checking it out over a spot of lunch this summer, and putting it on your list of apres-ski haunts, as we suspect it’s going to be an awesome spot to watch the alpenglow light up the continental divide this winter.

Hideaway Park Brewery
Winter Park welcomes its first nano-brewery in the form of Hideaway Park Brewery.

Located next door to Fraser Valley Hot Dog, Hideaway Park Brewery is a fabulously unpretentious tap bar offering hand crafted beers (that are brewing all around you), and a good bit of banter while you’re supping on your brew of choice.

The on-tap menu includes an IPA, summer ale, stout and red ales; and while the brewery will not be serving food, they will allow you to bring in a box of your favorite take out to munch on while you’re having a drink.

Hideaway Park Brewery is open Wednesdays – Sundays, on an afternoon/early evening schedule, so be sure to check out the opening times below to make sure you stop by at the right time.

Summer opening hours:Wednesday/Thursday from 3 PM – 7 PM, Friday/Saturday from 12 PM – 8 PM, and Sunday from 12 Noon – 6 PM.
