Pepper Place is a popular spot to eat, shop and socialize in the Magic City. With restaurants like Bettola, The Lumbar and Hot & Hot Fish Club there already, The Burrow will be something different—yet complementary—to its neighbors.

The owners of The Burrow are excited to bring a fun, kid-friendly and pet-friendly venue to Birmingham’s Lakeview District. With live music, trivia, indoor + outdoor games, food and craft cocktails like the “bless your heart-ini,” The Burrow is sure to be a hit new location for your next date night, corporate event, wedding, or just to grab a bite to eat.

An opening date isn’t certain yet, but The Burrow will be located at 200 28th Street South.

“We are going to be a fun place with playful food and a unique atmosphere, perfect for a quick lunch, date night, or Sunday funday.”

Chef Cory Bolton
