Traveling south on First Street, the Hideaway really is just that—hidden away. Surrounded by light industrial plants, this old pump house sits on the Kinnickinnic River. Before open in the spring of 2010, the owners build a large outside bar house, seating area and volley ball courts. In the summer, this was a great hangout by many people. The main building has a small kitchen and first floor seating area, with a larger second floor that looks down to the first floor dining area.
We ordered our food and waited for it to arrive, we looked around the space some more and ordered a second round of drinks. Angel did talk to us about the space and what it offered in the summer. He even said that the volleyball courts might be flooded in the winter, so that the brew house could offer ice skating as well. "Hey, if you have the space back there, you may as well use it, right?"
