“The new concept for the space is a Texas Whiskey and Smokehouse. We’re open now, but our grand opening is tomorrow. It’s going to be crazy here.

The owners went down to Texas for a big trip and checked out the best BBQ, smoke meat, whiskey places they could find. They came back and put it all towards the concept for the Hayden Block. The owner used to own Molly’s way back a few years ago. He’s owned a couple of restaurants around the city but he’s put a focus into Hayden Block.

We put a lot of effort into the old Yardhouse that used to be here. It’s a brand new space, really good energy. Also, it’s totally haunted.

That Texas Longhorn skull you see behind the bar? Yeah our chef actually ate the meat that came from it.”
