Expanding their mission to make more possible, Green Street Real Estate Ventures (“Green Street”) has partnered with food and beverage entertainment experts, Jacob Miller and Chris Honstain, on the creation of Brick + Bev, a Green Street affiliate that will provide a super suite of services for the entertainment and hospitality industry.
Brick + Bev is an innovative new business model that will create incredible experiences by combining industry-altering entertainment and exceptional hospitality. Services include but are not limited to hospitality design, brand development, menu engineering, operations & systems development, strategic & event marketing, project management, event programming, activation planning, F&B development, talent sourcing, and more.
The Brick + Bev team is currently developing a regional, entertainment destination with six unique entertainment venues, all located within the Armory, an historical landmark in Midtown St. Louis. The first phase of the project will open in late 2022.
According to Miller, “Brick + Bev is here to do something different. The Armory is an incredible part of the history of St. Louis, and we are approaching it with a sincere commitment to the community. It will be the ultimate gathering and celebratory spot for all St. Louisans. We also have an ambitious expansion strategy for additional concepts in the region. Wait until you see what we have planned.”
“The Armory has a special place in my heart,” said Phil Hulse, Green Street CEO and founder. “We purchased the building because of its historic significance and location. After several different directions and a global pandemic, we are thrilled to have found Jake, Chris, and their team to execute on what is the right path. We can’t wait for people to experience the transformation made by Brick + Bev.” Innovative New Vertical Page two of two August 8, 2022
