On the heels of last week's news that a fishmonger and Japanese fusion restaurant are entering the mix of tenants at the forthcoming Krog Street Market development is the announcement that a bottle shop from Hop City Craft Beer & Wine is also on tap. In addition to 2,400 square feet of store space, there will be a "sit and sip" bar for marketgoers. Construction is now underway on individual stalls, with Krog Street Market slated to open in late July of this year, now with a wine and beer shop.
From its market space Hop City plans to offer "an eclectic and impressive collection of craft beers, fine wines, and even their famous growlers." And working in tandem with the market's restaurants and other tenants, the bottle shop will stock the wines and brews offered elsewhere in the market for take-home purchase. The Krog Street Market location will be Hop City's third; the bottle shop currently operates a flagship store in Midtown Atlanta, as well as an outpost in Birmingham, Alabama.

A LOCAL FAVORITE SETS UP A WINE & BEER SHOP AT KROG STREET MARKET
WELCOME HOP CITY TO THE MARKET MIX!
ATLANTA: By this summer, Krog Street Market will have it all. Paces Properties is upping the ante with their latest addition to their exclusive roster of tenants with a wine and beer shop from highly-acclaimed, Hop City. As a top rated retailer of craft beer in Georgia and Alabama, Hop City will offer an eclectic and impressive collection of craft beers, fine wines and even their famous growlers. KSM Visitors will have more than 1,000 options to choose from in their new 2,400 sq. ft. location and if that's not enough, Hop City will have an adjacent 750 sq. ft. bar for guests to sit and sip while at the market.
"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."
"The continued growth of Krog Street Market makes Inman Park a more neighborhood-centric and desirable area for visitors and residents alike," said Councilman Kwanza Hall. "I look forward to returning to Krog Street Market this summer when it officially opens."
KSM guests will also have access to Hop City's in-house sommelier as well as access to the wines offered at market restaurants. "One of the things we want to make possible is that moment when you try an incredible bottle of wine with dinner and want a bottle to-go," added Cochran. "Our guests will now just have to swing by Hop City on their way out and pick up that incredible bottle of wine they had at dinner. Convenience and the experience are the key underlying themes of KSM."
"Hop City is thrilled to be a part of this talented collection of artisans in one of the most vibrant and intriguing parts of in town Atlanta. We are excited to showcase the by-the-glass skills we have honed over the past year and a half in Birmingham along with the continued curation of beer and wine for home consumption for which Atlanta knows us today."
Whether you're stocking up for your next gathering or meeting friends after work, Hop City will be a welcoming destination for KSM visitors. Hop City is slated to open when Krog Street Market opens this Summer.
