Timber Gastropub to replace the Hot Rod Cafe

Construction work is already underway on the former Hot Rod Café Building on Schneidmiller Dr. in Post Falls. The building is been repainted with a gray, almost black paint and the iconic hot rod that once spun over top of the entry way has been removed.

We actually mentioned this plan some time back, but are just now getting the full details. Turns out the former Hot Rod Café is being converted into a gastropub style bar and restaurant. The new business name will be Timber Gastropub and it is currently scheduled to open in March.

Timber Gastropub is being designed by HDG Hissong + Hurtado Design Group of Spokane and is a business venture of Bill Miller and Randy Ingraham who are also the owners of Longhorn BBQ in Spokane. In fact, a new Longhorn location was once rumored to be what was going into the old Hot Rod building.

Timber, will have a new interior look in addition to a full bar. A food menu will also be included that consists of burgers, pizzas, wood oven apps and much more for lunch and dinner. We expect to see a full menu as the opening date nears.

The new restaurant will employ about 40. Renderings of what Timber will look like once completed can be found on HDG's Facebook page ( postings are back in Oct. ) -
