A secret rooftop cocktail party in downtown Winnipeg will celebrate the city’s best designed businesses.

Winners of the second annual Commerce Design Winnipeg contest will be announced on August 28 at a location to be revealed at noon that day.

The Shades of Cool — Rooftop Pop-Up Cocktail Reception is being hosted by the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, and StorefrontMB, who will treat attendees to delicious cuisine and conversation about Winnipeg’s emerging design culture.

“Five of the nine winning businesses from last year’s Commerce Design Winnipeg contest are located downtown,” said Stefano Grande, executive director of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ. “As a result, many of these businesses have noted increased sales and visits. That’s why we’re excited to host this event — to promote the importance of attractive storefronts and why they are essential elements for a vital city and a vibrant downtown.

The event runs from 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 23. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased online.
