Ethan Stowell opens restaurant in car lover's dream, 'The Shop'

Welcome to The Shop. A haven for car nuts, motorcycle fans and pub-grub foodies in the heart of SoDo. Matt Bell is the mastermind behind this all-inclusive dream garage and says it's a place for car lovers, to store, maintain and enjoy their favorite machines.

“If you’re not a member you can come in here and enjoy some great food while looking at cool cars and meet other car people but if you’re a member you can put your car on a lift to work on it, and you can pay someone to help or teach you or have them do the work for you." Matt Bell says, "Then of course we have car storage here so, if you have a condo downtown or a two car garage with a three car collection we can take care of that for you.”

Another great feature - an indoor car wash area. Perfect for keeping your car showroom clean, even in the dead of winter.

If "The Shop" were a country club, "Derby" would be its 19th hole. This brand new Ethan Stowell restaurant features next-level pub fare. From chicken wings to burgers to BLTs with bacon a quarter-inch thick. Delicious!

Ethan Stowell says “We want anyone to feel welcome here. It’s not too guy centered or dude focused come down here before the game, after work, happy hours good. It’s awesome.”

Matt says this place isn't just for rich guys. They have everything from VWs to Ferraris in their space and for about the same price as monthly parking downtown, its a bargain.
