MILWAUKEE (June 26, 2017) –  MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant has exciting upgrades in store this summer with renovations and new spaces, including a new addition to the restaurant, the MOTOR Can Room. With a focus on camaraderie and craft beer, the Can Room will offer guests another unique way to experience the Harley-Davidson Museum® campus, beginning this fall.

The construction features two key elements: renovations to MOTOR’s existing dining and bar areas, and the new Can Room. As an extension of MOTOR, the Can Room will offer guests a laid-back atmosphere, signature bar menu and exclusive canned craft beers, making it perfect for meeting friends for a drink or quick bite to eat. The remodel begins Monday, June 26. Crews expect to finish work on MOTOR™ mid-July, and complete the Can Room in late-August. MOTOR™ will remain open during all construction and encourages guests to take a first-hand look at MOTOR’s transformation over the upcoming weeks.

“The renovations to MOTOR™ and the creation of the Can Room are designed to further enhance the customer experience and improve functionality for our staff,” said Dave Kash, director of operations for MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant. “It’s an exciting time at the restaurant, and we appreciate our customers’ patience throughout the process. We welcome everyone to stop by during the next two months, enjoy a meal and check out the progress!”
