Orchestra Partners recently announced that construction has begun at the old Bailey Brothers building in Five Points to bring a social house to the area in Summer 2018. They have partnered with El Barrio and Paramount for their expertise in combining both dining and gaming into a fun and unique experience.
The “high-energy bar and restaurant” aims to have multiple attractions including table tennis, shuffleboard, foosball, duckpin bowling, and other group games. There will also be a lounge area with televisions and a rooftop bar overlooking 20th Street.
Food will be “inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, grounded in Southern Tradition,” and all food sourcing will be humane, hormone/antibiotic free and local. The new social house will also feature a wide selection of cocktails, wine and draft beer – both local and regional!
