The Alley Downtown Taproom in Aiken is opening a new location at 875 Broad Street in downtown Augusta, bringing their pay by the ounce or pint approach to beer sales to Augusta proper.
Next door to the new taproom a wine bar is planned for the corner of 9th and Broad Street (the building with the new James Brown mural.
Just across 9th Street (James Brown Boulevard) is where Laziza will be opening soon.
The second self serve beer bar is opening up across Broad Street from Laziza in the former Rhodes Variety Shop at 902 Broad.
Tacocat, owned by the Frog Hollow Group’s Sean Wight, is currently under construction at 990 Broad Street.
Add to that the new Edgar’s Over Broad rooftop bar in the Augusta University Building at the corner of 7th and Broad Street-and you have a lot more choices coming to downtown.
