“Just do it” isn’t just a Nike slogan for Tim Hightower, owner of The Lumbar in Pepper Place. It’s also his philosophy when it comes to expanding outdoor seating.

Hightower says that applying for Birmingham’s Shared Space Permit and building out an outdoor seating area has allowed the bar he co-owns with his daughter, Rylie, to double capacity for less than $1,000.

Watch him explain the process and why he hopes other Birmingham’s businesses take advantage of the permit.
