Blue Jacket will replace the Triangle Bar

This summer, Walker's Point will put on a new jacket; one initially intended for the East Side.

Blue Jacket Bar will open at 135 E. National Ave. in July, according to Laura van Heijningen, who will own the place with her husband, Tom.

The van Heijningens were initially eying a location on Murray Avenue on the East Side, before settling on the space that, until last Friday, housed the Triangle Bar.

"We intend to add a full menu to the new space, featuring appetizers, salads, burgers and sandwiches," Laura told me via email. "We will give a percentage of the proceeds back to organizations that support Lake Michigan."

Blue Jacket will serve lunch and dinner and run as a full-service bar.

Construction on the space is set to begin.

"It looks pretty crazy right now," says van Heijningen. "Tom has his work cut out for him."
