Projected opening: mid-June

9 Mile Garden, which opened two years ago in Affton, is not only a convenient place to try different food trucks, but also a destination in its own right, with live music and standup comedy, movie nights and other events.

Now the 9 Mile Garden team of managing partner Brian Hardesty and Larry Chapman of Seneca Commercial Real Estate have partnered with Jeff and David Kolb of Kolb Grading, Tom Mohan of Chapman Ventures and Michael and Kate Reiter of Cottleville Ventures to bring a similar experience to Cottleville with Frankie Martin’s Garden.

Similar, but not identical. Frankie Martin’s Garden, named for a late fixture of the Cottleville community, will feature food trucks, of course, as well as pickleball courts, an outdoor beer pavilion and a bar with wine and an extensive selection of whiskey.

“We want to have each one of these (venues) that we do have alternate things to do and different features so people have reasons to visit all of them,” Hardesty told the Post-Dispatch in February.
