The Gnome, a craft pub, will open in the former The Happy Gnome space on Tuesday, with patio-only service to start. 

The modern pub and beer hall at 498 Selby Ave. in St. Paul has been in the works since The Happy Gnome closed its doors in December after 14 years. Restauranteurs Brian and Sarah Ingram teamed up with Chef Justin Sunderland on the project.

"We're really excited about doing it, opening up The Gnome and really welcome people back to an old friend," Brian Ingram told BMTN on May 8. "The Gnome was an institution for a long time and we're really excited to bring it back."

According to a news release, The Gnome will open only its patio from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. In the coming weeks, it will extend its hours and offer inside seating. Reservations are encouraged and can be made here

The Gnome menu features supper club food, such as European roasted and shaved meats, sandwiches, build-your-own charcuterie boards and tableside raclettes. For drinks, there are more than 100 beverages on tap, including craft and local beer, wine, cocktails, soda and cold brew coffee.

Owners Brian and Sarah Ingram also made changes to the space, which was a former firehouse, such as expanding the patio – now it's one of the largest in St. Paul – and adding an outdoor bar.

They also redesigned the main floor and upstairs created a beer hall and event space with games and activities.
