‘All ships rise with the rising tide’: Downtown bar, restaurant owners view social district as good opportunity

Natalie Anderson/Salisbury Post — Downtown bar and restaurant owners gather at New Sarum Brewing on North Lee Street Tuesday in a discussion with Downtown Salisbury Inc. to discuss the implementation of a social drinking district.

Downtown Salisbury Inc., which is working to establish the district, met with downtown bar and restaurant owners Tuesday to discuss the proposal they plan to bring forward to City Council next month. DSI Board of Directors member Samantha Haspel told the Post DSI has already discussed this idea with downtown merchants. So, Tuesday’s discussion primarily included logistical questions about implementation.

(DSI) and the Empire Redevelopment Task Force (ERTF) have unanimously voted to move forward with a boutique hotel concept with residential and commercial mixed-use for the redevelopment of the former Empire Hotel, awarding the development bid to Charlotte-based developer, Brett Krueger, and his affiliate, Howard Kosofsky.
