609 Social

Market & Provisions

609 Social Market & Provisions, located at 609 Bank Street, is a total renovation of a 121-year-old, commercial building right in the center of historic Bank Street. Soon to be Decatur’s first urban market, 609 Social promises to be the town center of Old Decatur.

609 Social is a new Decatur dining experience, provisions provider and gathering place that encourages community and togetherness, promoting Southern hospitality through creative cuisines, handcrafted spirits and community events.

With our creative take on traditional Southern fare, 609 Social will use the freshest locally sourced ingredients from family farms and U.S. fishermen.

The renovated historic building on Bank Street will feature a rustic, relaxed atmosphere with multiple spaces to gather, including a raw bar, full-service cocktail bar, community tables and a full-service fresh provisions market. Exposed brick and industrial pipe paired with a neutral palette and large scale graphic art creates a warm environment for guests to mingle.

Inspiration examples shown. Photos coming soon.
