The Public Market’s highly anticipated Public Bar opened in the market’s food hall last week. The bar is a centerpiece of the Public Market’s vision to provide a space that patrons will hang out and make it both a daytime and evening destination.
To compliment the bar atmosphere, the Market also recently installed some large projector screens that will feature live sporting events.
“With the opening of Public Bar, the community has yet another reason to come and linger at Public Market,” said CCRP President Mark Stefan. “People are really enjoying the experience of hanging out together while watching sports and other programming on the big screens.”
Public Bar features its unique “99 bottles of beer on the wall” selection of domestic and craft brews and their signature “Blush” Cocktails composed of frosted ice and exotic fruit flavors.
“We really want to be the neighborhood bar for Emeryville,” said Public Bar partner Taylor Kim. “With the large venue of Emeryville Public Market and its wide array of food options, we feel Public bar will help install the entertainment and heartbeat of the market!”
NabiQ Korean BBQ Opens. Pig in a Pickle next in line
In addition, NabiQ Korean BBQ recently opened offering patrons of the food hall another dining option. “Old School” Public Market patrons who remember Sorabol will recognize NabiQ’s flavors and family-run management.
The Public Market is NabiQ’s second location with the original in San Jose.
Pig in a Pickle facing Paradita Eatery is expected to open within the next week or so. Public Market will be the second location for Pig in a Pickle, which serves fresh-smoked meats, house-made sauces and sides.
With the opening of Pig in a Pickle and the forthcoming Super Duper Burger, The Public Market Food Hall will be two-thirds leased.
Parcel C2 breaks ground
Many readers have reached out to us regarding the construction behind the Grocery Store space facing the renovated Christie Park. This development is “Parcel C2” a 66-unit apartment complex being developed by Avalon Bay.
There has also been some additional “chatter” around the possible subleasing of the former New Seasons space but nothing definitive. We hope to have this information as well as a new reopening date for Christie Park soon.
