Longmont's 7 West Pizzeria Pub introduces city's first rooftop dining space
The new rooftop deck at 7 West Pizzeria Pub is something new for Longmont, and it has received a warm welcome from diners, owner Ed Behlmann said.
at 526 Main St. can seat 86 people at umbrella shaded tables on about 1,400 square feet. It is the first rooftop deck built on a restaurant in the city, Behlmann said.
"We wanted the aesthetics to look nice and fit in with the other buildings in the area. It was first rooftop deck downtown so we wanted to raise the bars for others to follow."
"It was an old building so we had to bring it up to code for safety reasons," he said. "Exiting the structure and locating the staircase, and how it would work with the rest of the restaurant, were concerns. And cost was a factor, too.
The architect, Peter Carey of Carey Design Studios in Gunbarrel, said he dealt with a number of variables while designing the deck.

He said he'd been thinking about adding a seating area and bar on the roof for a while but it wasn't until December, when he learned that the city's zoning allowed it, that the idea kicked into high gear. City inspectors told him if he wanted to build a deck on the roof, he would need to add a second set of stairs and a sprinkler system throughout the building due to the increased seating capacity.

"I was excited to be part of that," he said.
Rooftop decks on restaurants are popular in Boulder and lower downtown in Denver, and Carey said he thinks the idea will catch on in Longmont.
It took about a month to design, which Carey said was a bit rushed, but it was important to have it open for the summer season.
