THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE—TRIAD NC | VOLUME 16—ISSUE 2 34 GREENSBORO For the first time in more than 30 years (drum roll, please), Greensboro will open not one but five new hotels. Towneplace Suites by Marriott is scheduled to open in January 2019. The biggest hotel buzz is the Hyatt Place Greensboro Downtown, also called Carroll at Bellemeade developed by local, Roy Carroll. The Hyatt Place complex which will also include apartments is scheduled to open in February 2019. Carroll, has made an impact on the downtown with the transformation of the 17-story former Wachovia building into Center Pointe luxury condos that overlooks Center City Park. Simple pleasures are special when its cold outside like "Trivia" night held across the city in restaurants and bars. Geeksboro Coffeehouse Cinema trivia fans pay to play in the fun locale, eat a slice of pizza at New York Pizza while playing trivia, or go to Jakes Billiards on Wednesday night's near UNC-Greensboro. Not only is it one of the best food and drink deal in town with $6 burgers and $3 dollar brews and sangria, but you can get your game on with a game of trivia. With development on the horizon, it is fitting that new eateries and breweries are cropping up on the scene. Locally owned restaurants are making their mark across the city from casual food scenes at Crafted the Art of the Taco, MELT, Stamey's Barbecue, Hops Burger Bar, to upscale at Southern Lights, GIA, Village Tavern and others. Diverse ethnic food is exceptional in the Gate City from Asian at Pho Hien Voong, Binh Minh Vietnamese, Ghassan's and Pita Delite (Lebanese), and many more. Greensboro has bragging rights with six new breweries opening in recent years. Preyer Brewing, Gibbs Hundred Brewing, Joymongers, Little Brother and Pig Pounder, join the pub that started in all, Natty Greene Brewing. Leveneleven Brewing, the newest brewery, has already won a silver medal for its Right Proper tropical stout at the U.S. Open Beer Championship. Spirits are served at Fainting Goat Spirits where vodka and gin are the ticket with a tasting. At GIA you can enjoy one the city's best gin and tonics. Or go for a winning cocktail at 1618 Midtown where rum is a favored spirit. There you can experience a potent and delicious drink at the skilled hand of bartender, Max Barwick, who won a national award for his "Bitter Party of One," a cocktail made with rum and absinthe. Sports are king in the "tournament town," headquarters of ACC collegiate sports. The sporting life starts off each spring when the Greensboro Grasshoppers are up to bat in the First National Bank Field stadium. On the weekends watch fireworks that light up the downtown sky. In August, professional golf is front and center at the Wyndham Championship golf tournament.>> Your Guilford County Connection A team that has over 60 years experience in the industry, we are experts at both new and existing construction.
