We’ve all been cooped up in our homes for months, and the Great Receipt Race is a great way to explore the city again while supporting our local small businesses.
Learn about a few businesses that are welcoming customers back through their doors and how they’re keeping you safe while you visit:
The Atomic Lounge
2113 1st Avenue North
From Tuesday through Saturday, The Atomic is offering socially distanced drinking options on 1st Avenue North, complete with expanded patio seating. Plus, you can leave with a t-shirt showing your support for the watering hole.
The Pizitiz Food Hall
1821 2nd Avenue North
Downtown Birmingham’s dining hall is back open for business—but with facemasks and other requirements to keep visitors safe. Enjoy just about any cuisine you can think of and also participate in their Pizitz Punch Card competition for a chance at a prize that’s worth $1,000!
200 20th Street North
The 20th Street bar is offering limited dining room seating. Walk-up service and patio seating are still available, so pull up a chair, grab a drink and order one of their great burgers!
218 20th Street North
Reservations are now required to enjoy the French restaurant as its dining room has been transformed into a mix of regular and semi-private seating options. Outdoor seating is also available.
The Collins Bar
2125 1st Avenue North
The bar is open inside and has patio seating. They’ll also bring drinks to you and your coworkers for a pandemic-adjusted happy hour! Contact them for more details.
1924 2nd Avenue North
That’s right, there’s no need to look any further than downtown if you need to make a quick grocery run. Harvest Market has everything you need—including more health-conscious options such as supplements and a hot bar that serves homestyle-cooked lunches.
We’ve made it to the third and final public workshop for Re-vision Linn Park! Partners behind Re-Vision Linn Park will wrap up the community engagement process at the last public workshop on Tuesday, October 4, at Boutwell Auditorium. Community members can participate and provide feedback on a park design concept in the noon or 5:30 p.m. session – so come out one last time and let your voice be heard!
If you’ve been following REV for a while, you probably remember The Big Pitch Competitions we used to hold back in the day. The Big Pitch presented by PNC was essentially our own little version of Shark Tank. And a lot of your favorite local businesses that participated in this competition now have active retail storefronts that you can go check out. Let’s start with some of our finalists that are based in the City of Birmingham and see what they’ve been up to!
Have you been to Downtown Birmingham’s newest development located on 25th Street? If not, you need to head down there ASAP and check it out! This new single story development is a product of a collaboration between David Baker Architects (DBA) and Locke General Contractors, led by DBA’s very own Amanda Loper. It is intended to be a “collaborative commercial space in a catalyst development area of Birmingham.” Both DBA and Locke General Contractors will be tenants of the space, along with June Coffee Roasters, Zephyr Barber, and Last Call Baking Cooperative!
