In April of this year, we reported that Kennedy’s Premium Bar and Grill in Elizabeth closed temporarily. Now, a new concept, Caswell Station, is anticipating an opening date of early to mid September at 366 N. Caswell Road.
The owners of both The Trail House and Bradshaw Social House are transforming the once Irish pub feel of Kennedy’s to more of a neighborhood bar and restaurant. The exterior, interior, flooring, bar tops and furniture will all be brand new. There will even be an adult gaming area outside.
The upstairs portion of Caswell Station will be implemented in the coming months and will have a different feel than the downstairs area. You can expect a lounge experience with a speakeasy vibe featuring chill music, a mixologist creating craft cocktails and small plates.
Speaking of food, the menu will be “New American” style with shareable items such as lobster corn dogs, skewers, fried pickles, tatchos (tator tot nachos), burgers, salads, dips and more. The weekday lunch menu will consist of a “pick two” option with soups, salads, sandwiches and build-your-own salads.
The Trail House owners are also opening a new rooftop bar and restaurant at 400 South Graham Street called Graham St. Pub & Patio. The restaurant is centrally located between Bank of America Stadium and BB&T Ballpark. Expect it to open at the end of September or in early October.
