A restaurant inspired by the beach communities of Europe is coming to the ground floor of the City Club Apartments downtown this spring.
The Bathhouse, a wellness cafe inside of the City Club Apartments at 309 Vine St., is set to open this spring as the first portion of the Mercato Fabbrica, a culinary destination displayed in marketplace or department store style.
The larger Mercato Fabbrica will occupy 10,500 square feet and is set to open this fall. The Bathhouse will take up 850 square feet of that and offer different menus throughout the day, as well as an herbology-based beverage program.
The Bathhouse's beverage program includes a menu of ionized waters, with monthly water subscriptions available for building residents. It also offers an 18-head draft system gin botanical bar.
The design of the Bathhouse is inspired by mid-20th century European beach communities, with vintage light fixtures, reclaimed 1950s Spanish tiles and French craquelure tiles, as well as Butler farmhouse sinks and marble countertops from Southern Portugal. The restaurant space is topped by a hanging botanical canopy.
The larger Mercato Fabbrica will house 18 different marketplace stalls or departments, including:
The City Club Apartments is a mixed-use building that includes 294 apartments and penthouses, a rooftop restaurant, the upcoming Mercato Fabbrica and office space.
