Salt Lake City, Utah – November 17, 2021

Building upon the success of their Taproom and beer-to-go services, Shades Brewing is excited to announce the grand opening of their new location - Shades Downtown.

This new location boasts a comfortable and modern ambiance in the heart of Salt Lake City, complete with a coffee house, live entertainment, and a full menu curated by - and in partnership with - Sandy Arrieta, the head chef and owner of Arempas. With almost two decades of experience and a passion for cuisine, Arrieta is somewhat of a local legend, linked to one of Utah’s most exceptional menus recently featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri on Food Network.

Surya Bastakoti of Himalayan Kitchen will also add his flair to the menu, infusing unique flavors into traditional dishes and giving them an incredibly tasty twist. With the expertise of both Arrieta and Bastakoti, Shades Downtown is proud to offer an array of lively dishes accommodating all foodies - carnivores and vegans. 


 “We are so grateful to the community we have cultivated over the years and hope this new location will be a wonderful extension of that,” said Alexandra Ortiz of Shades Brewing. “While beer-to-go will still be available at our location on Utopia Ave, we welcome everyone to join us at Shades Downtown - whether it’s for an afternoon pick-me-up from one of our lovely baristas, a delicious lunch to connect with loved ones, or a night out to cheers your favorite Shades beer and celebrate with friends.”


Shades Downtown is located just above Himalayan Kitchen, centrally located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. Exclusively offering Shades local, award-winning beer and featuring a vibrant coffee house, craft cocktails, and some of Utah’s most notable chefs, this new location truly has something for everyone. Shades Downtown is open 7-days a week from 11 am to 1 am.
