HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) We checked in with Downtown Huntsville, Inc. on Thursday, May 15th to see what’s new and unique in the heart of the city.

Here are a couple of cool new events and additions to watch out for:

Growth on Northside Square

Several new businesses are opening up in this area of Downtown Huntsville. The Vibe will offer entrepreneurs and professionals a place to work outside the home or office. The downtown space will offer refreshments and a collaborative atmosphere designed to draw sharp minds downtown.

“If you’re an innovator, instead of working out of a coffee shop, or working out of your basement, you can get a membership here and come to this professional setting. There’s coffee, there’s water, there’s wifi, there’s printing — it’s just a great innovative space,” said Chad Emerson, CEO of Downtown Huntsville Inc.

The Office Break Room & Bar will feature a menu of Italian and Mediterranean meals in an affordable price range. It’s slated to open by the end of May and will move in where 3 Skillets used to be.

A Cup of Everything is a nifty little shop offering everything from coffee to treats. Stop in and check it out the next time you’re in the mood for a sip ‘o something new.

Downtown Open “Pop-Up Putt-Putt”

From June 13th – June 22nd visitors in Downtown Huntsville will be able to play 20 different “putt putt” holes scattered around the main square and surrounding streets.

The holes are sponsored by different businesses and will have different themes. Click here for details.

All ages are welcome and it’s free to play, just remember to bring your own putter!

    What are the city’s plans for increased downtown parking for without more and better street or garage parking new downtown establishments will fail. Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC have super nice parking facilities that help draw patrons into their booming pedestrian friendly downtowns.

    there are quite a few parking garages in downtown Huntsville – I have never seen them full. When our restaurant opened on North Side Square 6 years ago people felt that there was not enough foot or car traffic downtown to keep us in business. They were wrong. Parking is not as easy as at a Wal Mart – but downtowns are for walking. park a block away and walk over, or park in the garage and pay a few bucks – but businesses are thriving in downtown Huntsville!
