  • Bungalow 23 to take inside-out approach to food hall

    A new project will take the popular food hall concept and turn it inside out.

    Bungalow 23 will unite 9 separate cottages in one unified plan, with common outdoor space between them for seating, games and entertainment in the 700 block of NW 23rd in the Uptown District.

    Truong Le, the operator of Chick n Beer, will coordinate the food and drink concepts. Chick n Beer will move to the former Guernsey Park space (#1) to allow the remaining 8 buildings to receive updates and be filled with 3 additional restaurants and 5 bars, each with its own theme and offerings.

    The concept is similar to the popular Rainey Street area of Austin.

    The existing patios and porches of the bungalows will be activated as well as the spaces between them. The former small homes were all built circa 1918 and were renovated into a commercial project about 10 years ago, but recently the property has been mostly vacant.

    Le and Northline Development have signed a master lease for the entire property as well as the Miriwa restaurant and adjacent lot for parking. The long-vacant Miriwa building will be demolished.

    The architect is Ken Fitzsimmons of TASK Design. Some work has already commenced with major Improvements starting by the end of the year.
