Judging by the questions we’re getting, The Empire Hotel is shaping up to be downtown’s next hot project! So, for the curious, here’s an update directly from our friends at the hotel.
Executive Chef Haller Magee is finalizing menus for Moon Shine, the 17th floor rooftop bar that will offer spectacular views of the city, tantalizing small plates and signature drinks from a fully-stocked bar. He’s also cooking up plans for The Yard, The Empire’s full service farm-to-table restaurant. Look for a soft opening this spring.
The REV team is engaged with complex projects like The Empire on many levels, from facilitating streetscape improvements to locking down financial incentives. The end result? We’re helping to create vibrant commercial districts by filling vacant spaces and growing sustainable businesses.
After opening Chocolatà Artisanal Chocolatier in 2017, Kathy D’Agostino has enjoyed watching the once quiet streets of downtown Birmingham come back to life. REV sat down with her to learn more about how she landed here, where she thinks the city is heading, and why Chocolata believes in Birmingham.
