Dear neighbors, 

We can not explain how profoundly appreciative we are of the continued support you’ve shown us. The number of neighbors that have made our house like their own just goes to show how truly amazing this neighborhood is - one we’re extremely proud to be a part of, both at work, and at home. 

 

As the situation continues to evolve, we will continue to keep you updated. 

 

Our outdoor seating area is open, as well as our indoor dining area. Both require masks when not at your table. We will also continue to offer curbside pick-up!

What is most important to us is trying to find a balance between your health and safety, and welcoming you back to our house. Please bear with us as we navigate each day as best we can. 

 

You have been a source of humbling joy for us during a very rocky couple of months. And while we are not sure what will come next, we will strive to keep our doors open to ensure our house is somewhere every neighbor can enjoy. 

 

Thank you all.

Stay safe and healthy. 

Chad & Tiffany

1718 — Making meeting planners seem like heroes since 2019.

 

Hello there. Thanks for stopping by the house.

 

Welcome to our little oasis on East Street. We hope you enjoy your stay!  

And if you do, we’ll take every shameless plug we can get on the old social mediums.

 

Appreciate it.

What do you do? 

If “The 1718 Bates-Hendrick House Bar” doesn’t quite illuminate enough - here’s the gist: we have a small but mighty menu of small bites, hand-crafted sandwiches and a larger list of old-school crafted cocktails, craft beers and cask-crafted wines. (So cask-crafted wines isn’t a thing, but it needed a description.)

 

We are pretty new to the neighborhood and looking to provide a nifty spot to meet your neighbors, watch a game and grab a bite without paying for parking! As sophisticated as a house turned bar can be, we’ve got a posh flair with a south-of-downtown vibe. A perfect mix - just like a house and a bar...

Why a house?

Why not a house? The East Street corridor used to be home to several commercial businesses back in the day. Today, we’re hoping to be part of the pioneering group bringing back some much needed bustle to our ‘hood. We tried to keep as much of the 1900 house as we could - from floors to doors - we tried to maintain what makes Bates-Hendricks such a cool local.

Why are we doing this? 

Sigh, as if I don’t get this from my wife enough…

We moved from Fountain Square to Bates Hendricks in 2016 as a family. When my wife moved her advertising agency onto East Street, the opportunity to do something right next door opened the Pandora dream box. After a decade in the restaurant and bar industry for me and dreams of a microbrewery from years before for her, we found the excuses had run out and it was time to do it or shut it. 

 

So here we are, husband and wife, two businesses side-by-side with a house two blocks away - living the American Bates-Hendricks dream!
