Outdoor Food Hall, Beer Garden Coming To Springfield
An outdoor food hall and live music venue, the first of its kind in Jacksonville, is preparing for a Nov. 14 soft opening in Springfield.
WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports entrepreneur Evan Metz is developing the project he is calling Alberi at 1819 N. Main St. It is on an acre that his business partner, Up-Side Management Company President Victor Letourneaut, owns.
It is across Main Street from Strings Sports Brewery.
At its Nov. 14 soft opening, Metz said several food vendors will be onsite and several musicians and comedians will perform from 4-10 p.m.
Metz said the facility may hold another event in the coming months and will open full time in early 2021.
“The concept itself is a combination of a food hall, beer garden and live music venue,” Metz said.
For the opening event, Alberi will host several Jacksonville restaurants and breweries, including Jax Beach Brunch Haus, Buchner’s Bierhalle, Khloe’s Kitchen, La Nota Venezuelan, Twisting Roots and Engine 15 Brewing Company.
