ST. CLOUD - There's no doubt about it - the St. Cloud downtown bar and restaurant scene is growing in leaps and bounds lately.

Now, add "Brothers Bar and Grill" to the list. They're opening at the corner of Division and 5th Avenue in less than two weeks.

With two levels of seating, a full menu and a large craft beer selection, owner Josh Aliesch is confident "Brothers" will be a hit with both professionals and students.

Aliesch says he's had his eye on the building for a year and a half. Besides the ideal location, the old-fashioned details in the building's architecture made it even more appealing.

Aliesch is originally from La Crosse Wisconsin, and says St. Cloud has made him feel at home already.

There are currently 17 "Brothers Bar and Grill" locations throughout the midwest. St. Cloud's will be open for lunch beginning on Thursday, May 24th.
