The Ginger Man Expands With a New Outpost In The Fourth Ward

Don’t worry, it’s not leaving Rice Village

The Ginger Man, a Texas chain for all things beer, is debuting its new location in the Fourth Ward this month.

Swamplot reported that the beer emporium would be moving its original outpost (with a 33-year run) in Rice Village to the intersection of W. Gray and Webster after a new owner bought the current Rice Village building. That rumor has now been put to rest.

The new location at 160 W Gray St. is the seventh outpost for the brand, which operates four in Dallas-Ft. Worth and one in Austin, Swamplot reports. The expansion involved re-painting and renovating the space formerly occupied by Junction Bar & Grill, which closed last year. What’s known about the space is the now green-hued building has multiple patios and a spacious rooftop deck with “a beautiful view of Downtown,” Lindsay Whitman, director of training and events for the Ginger Man, tells Eater.

Adding a full-service kitchen and liquor are new roll-outs for the brand, which previously only served small bites and beer. Brews will still take top-billing at the new location with more than 60 on draft.

“It’ll have a more modern feel than the original outpost, but it’ll still hold the American pub feeling,” Casey Colbert, general manager for the Dallas location, told Eater. “It’ll be more of a restaurant and bar, but with a pub atmosphere.”

Expect the Ginger Man’s new location at 160 W Gray St. to be open by mid-February. Check back for more details as photos of the space and menu details become available.
