When one local business closes in Asheville, another opens, which makes it hard to keep tabs on all the newest places to experience. To simplify things, we’ve rounded up some of the newest Asheville restaurants, bars, breweries, and other businesses to frequent on your next trip to our mountain town. 

Check out what’s new this month below.

Diatribe | Now open at 1042 Haywood Road in West Asheville, in the former UpCountry Brewing Company location, is Diatribe Brewing Company. This brewery is owned and operated by Betty and Dave, a local duo well-versed in the craft beer world. Dave, the head brewer, has brewed professionally in and around Asheville for many years. Betty is a certified level ranked judge in the Beer Judge Certification Program and a certified beer server. Together, they’ve created Diatribe and serve a range of beers, wines (most are organic and natural or biodynamic), sake, non-alcoholic beer, local craft soda, and snacks.

The Radical | The Radical is not only an artsy new hotel in the River Arts District, but it also houses a rooftop bar and restaurant. The Roof at The Radical shows off some stunning views over the French Broad River, on top of tasty cocktails, wine, beer, and snacks. Golden Hour at The Radical is the newest restaurant concept from local chef Jacob Sessoms, who also owns and operates popular Asheville restaurants Table, All Day Darling, and Cultura. Golden Hour offers Southern flavors through thoughtfully composed snacks and big, bold chophouse-style plates. Meals are grilled and roasted over an open live fire with a focus on quality ingredients and beverages. Eat, drink, and stay the night at this eclectic spot!

Voodoo Brewing | Located in Arden, NC, just outside Asheville, NC, Voodoo Brewing features a wide range of craft beers and pub fare. The Voodoo Brewing brand is actually a franchise brewery with craft brewery locations across the country, including Knoxville, TN; Colorado Springs, CO; Reno, NV; Cincinnati, OH; and various locations in the brewery’s flagship state of Pennsylvania. The South Asheville, owned and operated by a Western North Carolina local, features an extensive beer list and what they call seltzer elixirs, which are cocktails made with seltzer instead of liquor.

Eulogy | Music has always been at the heart of Burial Beer’s immersive experiences. Now, with the opening of Eulogy, Burial Beer’s local music venue located next to their South Slope brewery, that heart is even more full. This new multi-use space features a full bar with 24 taps of Burial beer, housemade cocktails, wine from VISUALS, their line of wine, and more. The live music venue aims to offer a variety of programming, spanning all genres of music, from indie to punk to underground to experimental. Tickets are on sale for upcoming shows, and the space is open seven days a week with exciting events, like lounge nights, seances, and disco dance parties. Check out what artists are playing the next time you’re in town! 

The Low Down | From the incredible minds behind The Crow & The Quill, a speakeasy tucked away in downtown Asheville, now comes The Low Down, a chic underground lounge now open in West Asheville where the dive bar The Black Cloud used to reside. Find this dark, romantic, hidden gem at 723 Haywood Road and let the experienced bartenders create a custom cocktail of your choice.
