Plush and decadent are the main word Alex Origoni uses to describe plans for a new 7,000 square feet lounge and banquet space in Galt. It will be on the second floor of the new Brewster's Bar and Grill, which will be in one of the city's oldest historical buildings at B and 4th streets.

Origoni showed the above photo to the Galt City Council and said he hopes the large bar on the second floor will look similar to this one from somewhere in England. We are hoping that they will also be selling those small cans of Pringle's because they are delicious.

Origoni is one of three owners of the Shady Lady in Sacramento, a popular bar and restaurant that the trio describes as an “urban speakeasy saloon.”

At a meeting Tuesday, the Galt City Council approved loaning D&S Development $250,000 to finish upgrading the banquet room. The developer will spend another $212,000 to finish the second floor space. Origoni and his two co-owners also plan to spend $125,000 in furnishings and equipment.

In total, the city has loaned the developers $1.6 million to complete the rehabilitation of the building from 1868. Here's the breakdown:

• $342,000 as a grant for seismic retrofitting the building

• $583,000 as a 10-year forgiveable loan the developer meets certain conditions, including having a restaurant in the building for 8 years.

• $675,000 as a 20-year loan at 3 percent interest.

The restaurant and bar is scheudled to open in April. I'll make sure to keep you updated as the project moves forward.
