Restaurateurs Jacob and Tandi Wilson, well known for their multiple businesses, have teamed up with longtime Christy’s Euro Pub sous chef Kevin Kayes to open Side Bar, a Tex-Mex fusion restaurant located at 707 Dickinson Ave.
The Side Bar will offer a ‘no rules fusion fare’ for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, in the former location of Trollingwood Taproom.
“An artisan joint of tacos and cocktails is something we’ve always wanted to do in Greenville,” said Jacob Wilson.
Wilson, originally from Houston, TX, grew up with Tex-Mex and barbecue which he believes strongly influenced his business idea.
The side bar offers a variety of dishes and handcrafted cocktails. With entrees ranging from guacamole to gangsta chili con queso and tacos ranging from smoked brisket to cactus and cauliflower, the restaurant has appetizers for all palates.
The Side Bar offers a classic margarita and paloma while venturing into more eccentric flavors including tequila smoked in their ranch water.
The aesthetic of the restaurant encompasses an industrial look while adding organic and natural elements. Design inspiration came from local expert, Carley Page Summers with Carley Summers: Interiors, Styling & Photography.
Opening a fifth business in the Uptown neighborhood was an easy choice for these restaurateurs. They said they were excited about the continued growth of the neighborhood and having one of the few patio spaces in Greenville.
