Marisol Restaurant and Bar

Marisol can be your neighborhood coffee spot, or an art-filled destination for lunch, brunch, dinner, and drinks. Surrounded by an immersive art environment by artist Chris Ofili, diners enjoy table service with a full bar and private dining space, or counter service with communal tables that form the Street, our new community space to plug in or meet friends.

Farmers' Market

Stop by our plaza on Tuesdays for fresh baked goods, crepes, grilled cheese, tamales, and more. The SOAR Farmer's Market runs through June–October, 7 am–2 pm.


Tuesdays on the Terrace

On Tuesdays in June–September, stay cool with the breeze off the lake and performances by local jazz musicians from 5:30–8 pm on the Anne and John Kern Terrace Garden.

Open seating is available on our terrace or bring a blanket to relax on the lawn. Food may be purchased from our outdoor grill along with cold beverages, wine, and seasonal cocktails from the bar in the sculpture garden.

Many thanks to WDCB 90.9, the media sponsor of this signature summer event.
