Milwaukee, WI – December 27, 2016 – The Lowlands Group announced today that it will be closing their Tosa Village Café Hollander location for renovations beginning the afternoon of January 2nd, with a planned reopening of January 13th. The group recently renovated their Downer Avenue Café Hollander in November and will be making similar improvements to its Wauwatosa location as well.

“We’ve been planning an update in Tosa for a while and with the Village streetscaping project nearing completion, the timing just made sense,” said Dan Herwig, director of brand and marketing at Lowlands Group. “We’re excited to emerge this spring with an updated look inside and a re-energized Village right outside our front door.”

When the café reopens, guests can expect refinished floors, a redesigned bar area, new seating options and an increase of the number of draught lines from 23 to 31, including a special “nitro” line. Other improvements being made–which are not readily apparent–include many mechanical, kitchen and bar equipment upgrades.

Like all businesses in the Tosa Village, Café Hollander endured an entire summer of heavy construction as the city of Wauwatosa implemented the first phase of a massive streetscaping overhaul of their downtown Village area. When complete, the Village will be transformed with decorative pavers, festoon lighting overhead, and a more pedestrian-friendly design.

“While it was a painful summer for many of the businesses here, we see the long-term benefits this project will bring to the Village,” said Herwig. “Which is precisely why we’re making this investment when we are. In our minds, the Village is just starting to be what it’s capable of becoming, and we’re happy to play a role in its transformation.”

While Café Hollander is closed for the renovation, Lowlands Group is inviting guests to dine at their neighboring Café Bavaria, which is open for lunch and dinner on weekdays and full brunch and dinner on weekends.
