Bringing 15 new jobs to Grand Rapids’ West Side, the recently announced One Bourbon
will also debut the neighborhood’s first dedicated whiskey bar when it it opens this spring in the former Rocket Lounge at 608 Bridge Street NW.
One Bourbon will feature a menu of more than 100 whiskeys and bourbons and American regional dining favorites made from locally-sourced ingredients, including fried chicken, bourbon beef poutine and vegetarian shepherd’s pie.
At 6,251 square feet, the renovated space will accommodate at least 200 people, offering a downstairs bar and dining space, a private dining room and an outdoor patio.
Meagan Freriks, One Bourbon partner, says the building renovation will update the interior look with a new kitchen and a steel-wrapped bar, while still maintaining the original character of the building’s outside.
“We absolutely love the West Side community and, thanks to Colliers, we get to be part of this vibrant neighborhood and contribute to its exciting revitalization,” Freriks says.
Colliers West Michigan Retail Advisor Mark Ansara assisted with the leasing for this project and says he’s confident One Bourbon will experience a lot of success on the West Side.
“The West Side is booming, and it’s exciting to see new restaurant concepts like One Bourbon plant their roots in this neighborhood,” Ansara says.
