Barleygarden Kitchen and Craft Bar will debut in Spring 2017 with expansion of the Alpharetta mixed-use.
UPDATE (April 5, 2017): Hop City's Barleygarden To Open April 13
Hop City Craft Beer & Wine has plans to launch its first restaurant concept, Barleygarden Kitchen and Craft Bar, at Avalon, the 86-acre mixed-use development in Alpharetta.
The mixed-use project's developer North American Properties (NAP) Tuesday announced the news in a press release.
“Branching into both North Fulton and the dynamic Atlanta restaurant scene is a natural next step for Hop City,” Kraig Torres, founder of Hop City, said in the announcement.
“Our vast selection of draft beers has been a great success at Krog Street Market and we know the Avalon community will enjoy spending evenings on our rooftop patio, sipping local beer and enjoying gourmet food.”
The restaurant, which will be part of Avalon’s second phase, will offer a menu of highly regarded draft beer and locally-sourced, chef-driven food. Barleygarden will also feature a beer garden with lush outdoor space and an open-air rooftop bar.
Since Avalon is an open container community, guests can take their beer to go and shop or enjoy one of Avalon’s Signature Events on the Plaza. Similar to Hop City’s Krog Street Market location, the bar menu will focus on craft cocktails, carefully curated wines by the glass and a constantly-rotating 60 tap beer list including rare and limited selections. A local chef partner will be announced later this year to help curate the food menu.
“At Avalon, we’ve worked hard to create a best-in-class mix of restaurants from Atlanta’s most innovative chefs and entrepreneurs,” Mark Toro, managing partner at NAP, said inn the release.
“Barleygarden Kitchen and Craft Bar’s incredible selection of beer and other craft beverages along with its new culinary offerings will add another destination-worthy dining experience for our guests, residents and office workers.”
Avalon’s expansion is slated to debut in Spring 2017, and will bring additional retail, office and living space to the development as well as The Hotel at Avalon, an Autograph Collection hotel, and the Alpharetta Conference Center.
Retailers and restaurants confirmed for the expansion include Brooks Brothers, Urban Outfitters, Rumi’s Kitchen, The Boardroom Salon for Men, Lucky Brand, Levi’s and Brine Fish House.
