Meet Bowen Yard, a Winter Haven food and event space coming soon to the intersection of 4th Street and Avenue D SW. According to Beth Evans, director of leasing for developer Six/Ten LLC, the finished project will be similar to The Joinery, but “turned inside out.”
Patrons can already stop by SoCe Market, a bodega-style eatery with comfortable indoor seating and a shaded patio. Order your food to go or dine in and enjoy craft beer on tap.
In addition to SoCe Market, a new, full-size restaurant and bar and four smaller, synergistic food + drink concepts are also in the works — that means we’re looking at a total of six dining options when Bowen Yard is complete.
Between them, patrons can dine, lounge, and enjoy live music on the shared, pedestrian-only outdoor gathering space. Picture this: Shady patios, lounging and dining furniture, and string lights. Did we mention it’s going to be pet-friendly?
Evans says patrons will be able to walk their alcoholic beverages from space to space within Bowen Yard thanks to special permitting obtained by Six/Ten. Read: Grab your favorite cocktail and start up a game of cornhole with your friends.
A groundbreaking ceremony is set for Friday, June 23, and if all goes to plan, Bowen Yard will open for business this October or November, just in time for the outdoor holiday gatherings of your dreams.
