Hickory Street's popular patio is making a move uptown to accomodate more customers and more bottles.

According to Eater, Hickory Street is leaving its current downtown location to move further uptown. The new Hickory Street will be located on West Anderson Lane and Shoal Creek Boulevard, and its old location will become a high-rise hotel.

Last year, Barcelona and Third Baste Sports Bar owner Brendan Puthoff took over the restaurant, which draws its name from its original street location. He redesigned the Congress Avenue staple after its closing in 2011.

A press release from June 6 noted that the move would allow the restaurant to accommodate more customers, have a more convenient location, and house a 1,000-bottle wine room. Chef Camden Stuerzenberger will stay on staff during the move to continue serving his dishes crafted with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

Hickory Street’s happy hour starts at 3 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m. Great prices include $2.50 domestics, $3 margaritas, and $4 house wine. The new location is expected to open in early 2014.
