CBD Social, a new bar and pop-up venue from the folks behind Fat Boy Pantry, will swing open its doors Thursday, January 18 in the CBD. Located between Herbsaint and Marcello’s, the bar will be popping its own gourmet popcorn and curing its own salumi to go along with a menu of cocktails, local beer, and wine. It’s also the new home for Ramen Y’all on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., as previously reported by Eater NOLA.
The Ramen Y’all kitchen will be used to host other pop-ups for the rest of the week. Additionally, the bar will host a monthly gallery night, with a selection of rotating art for sale from local artists. The first gallery night will be January 25 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., followed by a crawfish boil.
The group only did “light renovations” on the space, like painting and small changes behind the bar. A pool table, which is free to use, has been added. The interior seats 55 to 60 people, and there’s room for an additional 20 on the patio.
The grand opening for both CBD Social and Ramen Y’all is tomorrow. CBD Social is open seven days a week from 4 p.m. on, with a goal not to close before midnight. Locals get a 25% discount on drinks after 10 p.m.
