DUBUQUE – There will be a new outdoor dining option for Dubuquers next year — thanks to a grant from the Iowa Economic Development Authority.
The group awarded seventy-five thousand dollars to the Smokestack gastro-pub. Its part of the Main Street Iowa Challenge Grant program.
The money will be used to renovate the upper-level into a rooftop dining area.
The owners are from New York and moved to Dubuque after visiting a couple years ago. They want to share their love of rooftop dining and living with the city of Dubuque.
