A new downtown tavern has been given a green light by the City’s Planning Commission, taking over a lesser traveled spot on First Street, close to the Bonneville Transit Center.
Social Studies will transform a former garage and adjacent home into a gastropub, located between Garces and Gass Avenues. Novus Architecture will be behind the design, creating a modern, orange-accented white exterior, framing a 3,936-square-foot patio imagined as a combination beer garden and outdoor dining space. Novus’ latest work will soon be unveiled when Panacea at Boca Park and Atomic Kitchen on Fremont East both debut shortly.
Inside Social Studies, a bar, gaming machines and indoor dining are all planned, with a menu currently scheduled to be created by Jordan Camacho, a former chef de partie at Bouchon, inside the Venetian. Camacho paused his culinary career to become part of Henderson’s Camacho Group, a real estate company that owns the gastropub property.
Construction work has yet to begin and project leader Robin Camacho is expecting it will be at least eight months before the tavern’s roll up doors will be opened to the public.
