Finn Hall is so close to being a reality: the doors to the sprawling downtown food hall officially open on December 3, but here’s a chance to look inside before opening date. Finn Hall will be home to 10 different eateries and two bars.Get ready to find everything from burgers to pho to pizza here.

The stalls include Amaya Coffee, Goode Co. Taqueria, Mala Sichuan Bistro, Dish Society, Oddball Eats, Craft Burger, Low Tide (a seafood restaurant from the team behind Harold’s), Mr. Nice Pie; Sit Lo (Vietnamese street food spot from the team behind the Bowl’D Up food truck), and Yong, a “modern Korean” restaurant from former Cottonwood chef Daniel Ajtai.

Diners will be able to grab a drink at the ground floor craft beer and wine bar St. Jac’s or head upstairs to the Swallows Nest, an Art Deco cocktail lounge on the mezzanine level. Those two bars will offer happy hour on Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 to 11 p.m, and on Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m. Happy hour specials will include $5 well drinks, $1 off all draft beer, and $6 select draft wines.

Finn Hall will have three different entrances: Main Street, Rusk Street, and through the lobby of The Jones on Main in the JPMorgan Chase & Co. Building. The Jones on Main in the JPMorgan Chase & Co. Building is also accessible via downtown’s tunnel system.

Downtown workers nearby are in luck: Finn Hall will also offer its own in-house food delivery and catering service with options from all its restaurants. That will begin with deliveries to the buildings in the area of Main St. and Rusk St. and then expand to surrounding office buildings, residences, hotels, and nearby neighborhoods throughout December and January.

The Hall will be open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Take a sneak peak at Finn Hall’s setup in the photos below:
