October may be coming to an end, but there’s no sign of Bluff City slowing down. Several new developments have been happening around the Memphis area, and we’re keeping our ears to the ground. Here are a few key happenings from the past month!
The ‘Vous Documentary
No idea what to watch this weekend? We’ve got you covered. The ‘Vous documentary features the history of the iconic Rendezvous restaurant from the 1940s to present day. You’ll hear decades’ worth of memories, celebrity stories, and even highlights of legendary staff members. Besides the history, it dives deep into politics, music, culture, and the rich history of Memphis. You can now stream the documentary on HBO Max.
Celtic Crossing Owners Expanding
DJ Naylor, owner of Celtic Crossing, made the announcement that a new spot in Regalia is set to open in 2022. Bog & Barley will have an extensive list of whiskey and beer, and it’s expected to be the next hot spot to watch all your favorite games. For more information, be sure to keep up with Celtic Crossing’s Facebook page.
Downtown Mobility Center Makes Headway
What does $62 million look like? Well, in the case of the Downtown Mobility Center, it looks like 1,000 parking spaces, a bike commuter station, retail stores on the main floor, and so much more. The Mobility Center will be located on the corner of Beale and Main streets and is planned to open sometime in 2023. In the meantime, you can keep up with all of the developments here.
Erling Jensen Small Bites & TopGolf Swing Suite
Erling Jensen The Restaurant and DoubleTree have collaborated for a new restaurant that has small bites and Memphis’ first TopGolf Swing Suite. Now fully open for operation, you can head to 5069 Sanderlin Avenue for a virtual gameplay experience and enjoy small plates while doing so. Be sure to make reservations for both dinner and the suites. Pricing begins at $50 per hour, and you can have up to six people in a suite. For more information, click here.
Embrace the outdoors … inside. As if Bass Pro downtown wasn’t cool enough, Wahlburgers Wild is officially open! Hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and you can bring the whole family to grab a delicious burger (and then do some shopping afterward).
Cheers to another jam-packed month of new developments!
