Dunbar Kitchen & Tap House
When Mike and Charles set out to open Dunbar Kitchen & Tap House our vision was clear, establish a neighborhood pub with a fun approachable menu using high-quality ingredients. They wanted to create an unassuming place where families feel as welcome having the kids with them as friends feel meeting for after work drinks, a night out on the town or catching the game. Simple and well-designed bar food and amazing sandwiches with a chalkboard menu for fresh exciting specials; tons of beers, handcrafted cocktails and a pronounced wine list.

If you are craving some home-style, finger-licking good comfort food, head to Welton Street Cafe and bring along your appetite! Southern soul food served with a Caribbean kick is what you can expect here. So think perfectly fried crispy chicken, succulent jerk pork, fried shrimp, chicken wings, fried okra, frybread, and melt-in-your-mouth fried fish. If you feel an overdose of fried foods setting in, try the equally tasty mac and cheese, the sandwiches, or the greens and yam. Delicious food, friendly service, and pocket-friendly prices make a meal at Welton Street Cafe perfect.

He wanted to reopen as soon as possible, but soon discovered that the space he'd found in the 2700 block of Welton Street needed a lot of work. In December he landed at the former New Climax at 2217 Welton Street, where he opened the next Randall's on December 19, 2014 exactly eight months after shuttering the 2157 Downing Street location.

Taylor Rees, Austin Wiley, Darren Boyd
Founders Taylor Rees, Austin Wiley, and Darren Boyd met while working at Great Divide Brewing Company. Now on their own, the trio of brewers has the freedom to explore more creative outlets for their craft, while staying true to their measured brewing roots. Taylor, Austin, and Darren, brew on a ten-barrel system here at Spangalang. Big enough to keep the beer flowing, but not so big that the beer will ever sit long enough for its quality to suffer. It's our belief that everyone deserves locally produced, exceptional craft beer, and we're here to bring it to Five Points.
