Locally based Concentrics Restaurants, which operates six Atlanta restaurants and has another on the way, is entering another major Southern market. The company announced Wednesday it’s planning a new brewpub in Charleston called Dockery’s, which will be located adjacent to the Holy City’s Daniel Island Performing Arts Center.
"Dockery’s will embody the best of this unique part of the South with quality fare, a unique atmosphere, and its own brewery," Concentrics founder Bob Amick said in a prepared statement. "We are keeping it simple: great food, great beer and great music."
The new restaurant’s brewery will be on site, and it will offer "a family-friendly concept that focuses on high-quality fare and craft beer." Atlanta-based firm The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry is in charge of the design, and the early timeline indicates an opening next summer.
In Atlanta, Concentrics operates One Midtown Kitchen, Two Urban Licks, Tap, Parish, Lobby Bar and Bistro, and Room at Twelve. The group is partnering with chef Mihoko Obunai to open a ramen shop called Nexto in Old Fourth Ward later this year. Concentrics previously operated The Spence, which Top Chef lifer and Atlanta expat Richard Blais helped open in 2012, but it closed last month. That space will soon be home to a micro-food hall from the team behind The General Muir.
Concentrics also boasts restaurants in St. Louis, Louisville, Orlando, and San Diego. The latter is home to Blais’s Juniper & Ivy.
