S.J. Collins Enterprises, the developer behind The Interlock, will welcome three new businesses at the mixed-use development in Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood, increasing the desirable entertainment and dining destinations available at the sought-after site.
DrawBar, Pour Taproom and Holiday Bar will join the lineup at The Interlock and have started the process of designing their interior spaces.
Scheduled for late spring 2021, the 6,000-square-foot DrawBar will anchor the third-floor lobby to The Bellyard Hotel and include a stylish bar, living room lounge and an outdoor terrace.
The cocktail-driven DrawBar will serve 25 delicious, craft-quality creations and more than 250 selections of spirits. Customers can choose from an elevated bar-centric menu with small bites and medium plates. The 98-seat contemporary but comfortably designed lounge will feature sectional sofas and dining tables ideal for groups and gatherings in a lively atmosphere. The 62-seat outdoor terrace will mimic a backyard garden with greenery and showcase views of the Atlanta skyline.
“DrawBar pays homage to the history of The Interlock development site and has been named for its interlocking coupler that connects railroad train cars,” said Chip Patterson, co-owner of 3P Partners, the developer of The Bellyard. “Playing off of unity and gathering, DrawBar will feature a robust list of craft cocktails combined with approachable and elevated bar food that focuses on the city of Atlanta and its people.”
Pour Taproom, a self-serve beer, wine and cider bar, will open a 3,400-square-foot bar and restaurant with an 800-square-foot patio. The taproom will partner with a restaurant on its menu.
The 1,251-square-foot Holiday Bar is slated to serve from an indoor space and an expansive open-air cocktail lounge – complete with fire pits and high-top bar seating with railings. The outdoor oasis will capitalize on The Interlock’s open-container license and offer patrons an easy way to grab to-go drinks to enjoy on the property.
Over the next few months, several businesses will begin to schedule openings at The Interlock, including Puttshack, Georgia Technology Ventures and Chase Bank.
“While downtown Atlanta is experiencing vacancy levels, we’ve noticed a flight from the City Center to the Westside, as seen by Microsoft signing the largest lease in the country here,” said Jeff Garrison, partner with S.J. Collins Enterprises. “This location is approachable and walkable, allowing people to be where they want to be – close to restaurants and boutique shopping with a great outdoor dining component. There is a small neighborhood ambiance with big city energy.”
Developed by S.J. Collins, The Interlock is a nine-acre community that is walkable from end-to-end. With a carefully curated and versatile mix of tenants, the community boasts 200,000 square feet of technology-focused office space, 105,000 square feet for retail and restaurant space, 349 luxury apartments and 18 townhomes as part of the Solis Interlock, 70 townhomes by Monte Hewett Homes and 161-room Bellyard boutique hotel.
“Leasing inquiries are at an all-time high at The Interlock,” said Justin Latone, senior vice president of leasing for the developer. “We have been touring large office tenant prospects from California and U.K. and those looking to relocate throughout the southeast. Our team has recently signed seven letters of intent, and we expect to announce additional office leases of about 25,000 square feet in the upcoming weeks.”
The development’s other amenity-rich elements include the public Interlock High Line, one-acre rooftop with a modern private pool club and lounge with a retractable roof. A 12,000-square-foot two-story restaurant and outdoor bar with covered patio and an infinity-edge pool with stunning city skyline views complete the space. The Interlock will also house a 50,000-square-foot incubator space by Georgia Technology Ventures and WeWork’s 120,000-square-foot co-working space.
Located at 1115 Howell Mill Road N.W. in Atlanta, The Interlock is ideally situated within a 5-minute walk to an abundance of restaurants, bars, retail shops, boutiques and cafes. Tenants will begin opening in spring 2021.
