Does the above picture look like a place where you’d like to go in a get a nice drink and some southern cuisine?
Well it’s going through changes and will look more inviting, but that’s what some local entrepreneurs plan to open in Bryant very soon. Copper Mule Table & Tap will move into this new property at 3348 Main Street, once construction has been completed.
The partners are Rob Gaston of Legacy Property Group, and Adam Whitefield who you may know as the owner of the Twisted Fries food truck.
“I have always had a passion for good food and drink,” said Whitefield, “but what essentially drew us to open Copper Mule was the lack of anything similar in Bryant.”
The restaurant promises fresh craft cocktails and modern takes on classic Southern dishes in a rustic, yet modern environment. See some of the planned menu below.
“I spent the last four years in Dallas, and Rob moved here from northwest Arkansas,” said Whitefield. “We missed the unique dining options that were available to us in those areas.”
Although these two are new to Bryant, it’s good to have transplants who want to build the city. Whitefield is from Magnolia, Arkansas and went to Southern Arkansas University. Gaston is from Helena, Arkansas and went to Arkansas State University.
Whitefield said they have a goal to make outdoor seating and an area from cornhole and other games. They are also considering live entertainment, trivia and karaoke nights in the future.
