Hidden Harbor opens marina, bar
Hidden Harbor in St. Paul Park, known for many years as Willie's Hidden Harbor, is back in business after being closed for two seasons.
"We are accepting boats and have opened the upstairs bar to customers," said co-owner Paul Narpaul. "The harbor dredging has been completed for now and we are building new docks. They will be installed by the end of May. The lower-level restaurant is scheduled to open by May 15."
Narpaul said he expects to have approval by April 30 on a final concept plan to hook up the marina to city sewer and water service. Construction should begin about May 31 and the project completed by July 31, he said.
The newly opened upstairs bar is serving pizza, chips and drinks from 3 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 1 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For details, go to www.hiddenharbormn.com.
