Downtown Newnan will soon have a new restaurant opening on Spring Street. City officials confirmed that a new pub or bar recently submitted renovation plans for 7 Spring Street next to the A Shane Buffkin Salon Newnan location.
“Right now, they’re doing interior renovations to the space, but they have not yet submitted any official applications for permits or anything like that,” said City Planner Dean Smith. “From what we have been told, it is a ground-floor restaurant, located at 7 Spring Street, which is going to be some kind of pub or bar-style establishment.”
The space is listed as being 1,900 square feet. Lori Duncan, owner of Blue Fern Merchant, says the restaurant will be called 714 Raw Bar.
“It’s going to be what you would call a ‘raw bar’ that serves oysters and also has lots of other organic menu items like tapas and lots more,” said Duncan. “It will be open around 6:00 a.m. for coffee and breakfast and will remain open for lunch and dinner where they will feature fresh oysters. It’s really like a take on what you’ll find in California where raw bars are very popular.”
Headley Construction Corporation, a Newnan-based company, is handling renovations for the project. 714 Raw Bar is expected to open sometime in October, according to Duncan.
