A new bar, restaurant and event space is in the works for 5 Points South in Birmingham. Say hello to Social.
The duo behind Social
Behind the upcoming hotspot is Jay Williams and Adrian Williams—both entrepreneurs with strong backgrounds in Birmingham.
Jay is the creator of J Wings, the popular restaurant known for its fiery wings, and is also co-owner of Safe Room, an upscale, basement-style lounge and bar in downtown Birmingham.
Adrian manages multiple J Wings locations and is also owner/operator of Salon Persuasive in downtown Birmingham.
“We are so excited about the city’s growth and development and the role we’ve played in that so far through both J Wings and SafeRoom. Following the success of those ventures, we started asking ourselves, What’s next for Birmingham, what else could thrive in the Magic City? It was those questions, a great deal of brainstorming and market research that led us to the idea that is now Social.”Adrian Williams, Co-Owner, Social
What to expect
From a curated menu featuring small plates, specialty brunch items and smoky cocktails to an event destination, Social will offer a fun spot for Birmingham’s creatives, trend-setters and business leaders to meet and gather.
“This will be the place to celebrate, savor and surrender to a good time.”Adrian Williams
Social will occupy the first and second floors of the Studio Arts Building at 1034 20th Street South in Birmingham’s 5 Points South.
Currently, there is no set opening date, but we will keep you posted as more is revealed.
