The Company Store Preview Event (Videos)

A guy was still painting a wall outside The Company Store at 9 p.m. on Thursday, but inside NoDa's newest establishment was bustling. A couple of dozen or so people got a sneak preview of Scott Lindsey and Joey Hewell's latest concept - The Company Store. The official opening is Friday.

The concept is simple. Open the door to your home, put some food out on the table, offer cold beer and invite people over. The food is charcuterie fixings from local and not-so local makers.The beer is definitely local, except PBR (gotta have PBR).

The Company Store is furnished with handcrafted (by Lindsey and Hewell) wooden tables, chairs and benches. Outside there are even more tables and a front and back porch. Artwork adorns the walls, but doesn't overpower. The Company Store is easily going to be the go to place in NoDa. No overpower music, no pushy waiters and a simple concept. Food for munching, beer and wine for drinking and good people for conversing.

It's open 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and noon - 9 p.m. Sundays. Here's the official press release.
