SteelCraft Garden Grove Grand Opening


SteelCraft Garden Grove, the newest open-air craft food and drink gathering space in Orange County celebrated its Grand Opening Thursday, September 26th, 2019. Founder and Creative Visionary, Kim Gros, also formally announced during the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony that renowned Wilson Creek Winery out of Temecula Valley is joining the SteelCraft Garden Grove family.

“Talk about a ‘wow!’ moment, Garden Grove is over-the-top thrilled, excited, and overjoyed to see SteelCraft add its one-of-a-kind vibe to our re-imagined downtown! The tremendous anticipation of their grand opening has been phenomenal, and goes beyond everyone’s expectations of what the largest, and first SteelCraft in Orange County brings to Garden Grove,” shared Honorable Mayor Steve Jones.

The 20,000 SF urban eatery, comprised of 22 repurposed shipping containers is woven together with a steel truss barn-like roof structure, reminiscent of Garden Grove and Orange County’s rich agricultural roots.
