Coming Soon: Bourbon on Front

Bourbon on Front

It won’t be long now. The wait is almost over, and after Bourbon on Front opened recently for a couple of special events, Hattiesburg is anxiously awaiting the official opening this February.

About Bourbon on Front

Another addition to Front Street Eats, Bourbon on Front, will soon be bringing steaks, seafood, cocktails, and of course, bourbon to the downtown mix.

The soon-to-be-open restaurant joins the likes of Blu Jazz Cafe, Hattiesburgers and Blues, Southbound Bagel & Coffee and Nellie’s Chicken and Daiquiris.

Besides all being in the downtown hub of The Hub City, each establishment brings something unique to the neighborhood.

For Bourbon on Front, that includes one of the best views on Front Street from their rooftop patio. Guests were treated to a special sneak peek at the VIP NYE Party and “A First Look on First Saturday” on January 7th.

While the downstairs dining area was not open for use, the upstairs bar was pouring drinks and serving complimentary appetizers. Plus, it offers those stunning rooftop views!

A few of the bourbons that will be regulars at the upcoming establishment include Yellowstone Limited Edition, Blood Oath, Kentucky Owl and Elijah Craig, just to name a few.

In fact, another sneak peek opportunity is scheduled for tonight. Make plans to swing by the upstairs bar for Business First Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for networking, drinks and appetizers available for purchase.
