Bar Beat: Lexington Avenue Brewery

One of the most-anticipated new venues in downtown Asheville is on the cusp of opening. At press time, the Lexington Avenue Brewery, complete with a brewing operation, a full-fledged pub and restaurant and a live-music space, planned a soft opening on Wednesday, Jan. 6. (That move follows an informal ribbon-cutting last week, pictured here.)

Wednesday's event won't be open to the public, but if all goes well, the LAB will open its doors with full service on Thursday, Jan. 7, General Manager Joe Culpepper tells Xpress. If everything isn't quite in order by then, he says, expect an opening imminently.

The LAB is located at 39 N. Lexington Ave. For more information, call 252-0212, and look for grand-opening updates on the venue's Facebook page:
