Leisuretown is an entertainment experience recalling early California resorts that welcomes the surrounding community and retains its history. This new model for craft brewery and restaurant developments in an outdoor setting using restored historic buildings.  

Leisuretown’s 33,000-square-foot environment includes: An historic, three-story 1911 craftsman home, restored and renovated for food and event space. A 1940s barrel-vault structure originally serving the neighborhood as a grocery store, now restored and converted for a craft brewery. 

Six repurposed shipping containers on two levels, for dining and food service, including an elevated lounge. Containers are sited to complement the existing structures and define the central courtyard. A 45-feet-long swimming pool – evoking Mid-Century Palms Springs – to cool off during the day and watch movies at night with lounge chairs and shade umbrellas. Almost a third of an acre of outdoor seating nestled in lush gardens. Multiple outdoor dining areas to accommodate safe distance. 

A former auto shop building has been converted as the central kitchen for food service including craft beers, wines. A walk-up store for take-home items and gifts, including Modern Times’ 70 craft beers and ciders.
