Rob Barry, General Manager of W. Social Tap & Table, said Dayton.com the bar will offer 16 taps of local and craft beers, wines and cocktails.
Each catering tenant will have a specialty cocktail at the bar. This includes Cajun Lemonade, Gin Pom, Trinidad Sour Riff, New York Sour, and Strawberry Margarita. Barry explained that he worked with the restaurateurs and Toledo Spirits to create the specialty cocktail recipes.
Barry said bartenders will be available to help customers choose alternate drink pairings with their meals.
The bar will be a work in progress, Barry explained. He said that to get to know the community and discover their favorite drinks, the bar will be flexible.
“At the end of the day, my goal is just to make sure that every guest who comes here leaves in a better mood and has a great experience,” Barry said.
Barry previously worked at Archer’s Tavern for 12 years as manager and general manager of the company’s Centerville and Kettering locations.
The bar will be the “heart of the restaurant,” said Barry.
He and Dillin explained that customers will be able to sit down, scan a QR code, and order drinks from the bar or cafe and food from other tenants at the same time. Customers will then receive a text message when their food is ready and they will never have to physically queue if they don’t want to.
W. Social Tap & Table is slated to open this summer. Dillin said they were doing everything they could to open the catering room as soon as possible.
“The creation of places is what Dillin and Wright-Dunbar does, we do it very differently,” said Dillin. “It’s really fun and feels really good to do it in a place that already believes in itself and wants help.”
