City leaders reveal businesses, logo and website for Riverside Village

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WJBF) – The CSRA got a taste of the new restaurants that are coming to North Augusta.

Upscale and affordable living, unique dining, shopping and baseball it seems Riverside Village has it all.

The live, work and play community’s first tenant? Augusta’s very own Southbound Smokehouse BBQ.

“I always like the music that they are playing and their wait staff is always really chill and laid back.” Lyndia Clothey, a resident of Augusta, told WJBF NewsChannel 6. “It’s just a good place to just go and hangout.”

Southbound’s expansion, across the river, will be the second location for the locally owned restaurant.

While the BBQ joint won’t look like the one on Central Avenue, the vibes are only changing zip codes.

“We’re excited about having a two-story restaurant,” said Manager Tripp Price.

Next to Southbound on right field, Atlanta-based Sweet Water Brewing is moving in.

“We will have our own taproom, that Sweetwater is going to be doing some special brews for us.” Price told WJBF NewsChannel 6. “We are going to have a beer garden and a big outside patio overlooking the water.”

Clothey says having everything is one place will be super convenient, and there’s plenty of options for housing.

From single family homes, senior living, luxury condos across from SPR park, to the Ironwood and Clubhouse Apartments, and for visitors the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

“I want somewhere I can chill, be myself, take a breather and just enjoy the environment and that’s a great place to do it.” Clothey said.

The restaurants hope to open by April, 10, 2018, when Clemson University plays the University of Georgia at SRP Park.

The inaugural baseball game begins at 6:30 p.m.

A website for the live, work and play community was also revealed, you can check it out HERE.
