Podcast: FR8 Yard set to bring new biergarten concept to downtown Spartanburg

Thursday, January 19

New downtown concept will be first of its kind in South Carolina


We like being first here in Spartanburg, especially when it comes to downtown development, and this week the City's Design Review Board gave their stamp of approval to a concept that's the first of its kind in South Carolina. FR8 Yard, an outdoor craft beer and restaurant space, is set to transform an empty downtown lot into a hub of activity. Located beside Sparkle City Mini Putt, FR8 Yard will also include games like bocce ball and ping pong, and will feature a stage for live music and a large projector screen for live sporting events.


Today on the podcast, we're talking about this wonderful new business and what it adds to our city's ever-changing downtown landscape.
