The Ensley Merchants Association, Ensley Alive, and REV Birmingham are joining forces to end a lunchtime void in Downtown Ensley. Our partners are proud to bring you Ensley Eats! From 11 am to 1 pm this Wednesday (TODAY) residents, workers and visitors can walk to 19th Street and Avenue F in Ensley to grab a delicious meal.
Ensley Merchants have banded together to accomplish a number of goals: one of them is to create an event that allows Birmingham to see Ensley in a new light. Customers will also have the opportunity to meet some of Ensley’s long-time business owners to find out what they believe makes Ensley special. #EnsleyAlive

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!

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!
