“We couldn’t think of a better addition to help round out our impressive group of market stalls and tenants than Hop City; they are great operators with a unique concept” said David Cochran, President of Paces Properties. “Frequenters of Hop City will not only be able to shop for their favorite beverages, but will also be able to enjoy a generous selection of craft beer, wine and cocktails at their market bar. We’re confident Hop City is that perfect complement to Krog Street and we are proud to take part in the expansion of such a notable retailer.”
Adding a wine/beer retailer to the Krog Street Market tenant mix didn’t happen overnight and took the support of the Inman Park Neighborhood Association as well as Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall over the past six months. “All of us at Paces Properties as well as our KSM chefs and tenants felt it was essential to have a bottle shop at Krog Street Market,” explained Cochran. “Inman Park bought in immediately and with Councilman Hall’s insight, guidance and support we were able to navigate the legislative process with the City of Atlanta and bring this partnership with Hop City to fruition.”
Hop City is slated to open when Krog Street Market opens this Summer.
