One of Atlanta’s most-celebrated restaurants is moving to a new location.
Anne Quatrano and her husband, Clifford Harrison, plan to move Bacchanalia from Westside Provisions District to a new loft office project on Ellsworth Industrial Drive, according an announcement.
The gourmet market Star Provisions would also relocate to the new 10,000-square-foot restaurant space, which is part of a project known as Ellsworth Office Lofts. It’s owned by Stream Realty and sits near Topgolf Midtown.
Stream Realty Partners L.P. launched the $12 million Ellsworth Office Lofts more than a year ago. It features 75,000 square feet of new loft office space geared to West Midtown creative firms.
Stream Realty’s Ben Hautt, Chris Dean and Kevin Driver spearheaded the deal to relocate Bacchanalia.
Bacchanalia and Star Provisions likely would reopen in the new space in first-quarter 2017. Star Provisions To-Go will remain in its current location. And, Little Bach will close.
Bacchanalia came to Westside Provisions District in 1999 when Howell Mill Road was still largely a gritty industrial corridor. Since then, the area has seen a wave of new investment, bringing dozens of trendy shops and restaurants, along with several new apartment projects.
“We are committed to the Westside and the timing is right for us to have our own stand-alone building for these two concepts,” Quatrano said in a prepared statement. “We are excited about the new space, and most importantly what we will be able to offer our guests by way of dine-in seating in Star Provisions, catering, ease of access and private event space options.”
