Partners Jeff Kimmel and David Heymann in spring 2023 will open Chamblee Tap and Market, a taproom and micro food hall, Eater Atlanta was first to report Friday. Kimmel confirmed the news in an email to What Now Atlanta. There’s also an Instagram page and website outline plans for the incoming food and beverage venue. “We are super excited to be joining the Chamblee community with the very up and coming downtown,” Kimmel said.
Situated across from Chamblee’s new City hall in historic downtown, Chamblee Tap and Market has space for four food vendors and a coffee shop, all of which will be anchored by a 20-tap, taproom. Kimmel and Heymann are currently “accepting inquires for food hall vendors,” according to the company’s Instagram.
Two spaces on Chamblee’s antique row will be transformed into Chamblee Tap and Market, according to plans filed with the City: Chamblee Antiques and Collectibles, at 3509 Broad Street, and Atlanta Furniture Restoration, next door, at 3515 Broad Street.
Kimmel and Heymann worked together at Ally Financial, according to their LinkedIn profiles. Chamblee Tap and Market appears to be their first foray into entrepreneurship and hospitality.
Vickers Design Group, the project’s architect, oversaw the design of a nearby Chamblee distillery and taproom that opened late last year called The Distillery of Modern Art. As Eater points out, the City in May voted to allow taprooms downtown.
