I think ali G. has raised a good point - these places is well annoying! I used to live in a condo near square one. Sounds carries very well from these places. On the 10th floor, we could hear conversations, arguments, and fights well past last call at 2:00 am from the bar below us. Let's face it, Hess village is now a club district, which makes the patios of Augusta St. more of a destination for people who want to enjoy nice things without dealing with inflated prices and some immature behaviours. I'm ok with the way things have changed. Hess Village serves a different niche than it used to when it had quaint patios. However, it should be allowed to grow in a sustainable way. Allowing that hideous box stucco called RokBar to be built was a FAIL by whovever approved it. Personally, I think Hess Village is not that different from Crescent St. in Montreal. I wouldn't bother with either of them these days. I would head for something more subtle like James St.or Augusta, or if I'm in the beautiful Montreal, perhaps the patios of St. Laurent St. But getting to the point about Gringos, I don't think there is a lot of room there for a patio. You're basically talking about a residential street. It would be nice to see, but I wouldn't blame the owners on that street a bit if they objected.
