This Week's Dish: Baileys' Restaurants Bringing Willow Private Event Space Downtown
New private event space Willow will be arriving Downtown in early 2016. The first private event space for the restaurants brought to us by Dave Bailey, the space will be located in the sister space adjacent to Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar and have complimentary decor, a large mezzanine and 16-foot-tall ceilings.
“The catering arm of our company has been steadily expanding for the last few years,” Bailey says. “After hosting many successful weddings and other occasions in our restaurants, we have decided that it is time to create a dedicated location just for events.”
The master violin maker Stradivarius—who used willow wood inside his violins to create a sound impossible to duplicate—is the inspiration behind the name of the space, which is tribute to Bailey’s late brother Tom, who played violin. Locust & 10th Streets, Downtown
