Shoppers at Uptown will have a new place to grab a bite to eat in the new year.

Browns Social House will open at Uptown in the spring of 2016, with construction on the spacious 3,000-square-foot upscale, casual restaurant and pub beginning in October. The location at the north end of Uptown Boulevard will also have a 1,000-square-foot patio that can accommodate year-round outdoor dining.

“Browns Social House is such a great fit for Uptown. Each location is designed for the neighbourhood it serves and this location will have something for everyone, especially families who don’t currently have many restaurant options in the immediate area,” said Jeremy Wilson, who leads the group bringing the restaurant franchise to Uptown.

“The location is ideal with plenty of parking, great atmosphere and so many stores and services that are complementary.”

The new restaurant comes to Uptown at a time when leasing interest has been strong. New storefronts and offices are open on Uptown Boulevard and Uptown’s upper level next to the ongoing phase three construction for a 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods store and a new 4,500-square-foot commercial retail space which is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2016.

“We are delighted to be welcoming Browns Social House. It’s the kind of dining offering our visitors have been asking for and we expect it will be received with great enthusiasm,” said Roberta Ferguson, general manager at Uptown.

“We’ve had a very busy period with leasing opportunities recently and we’re close to finalizing some additional deals which we hope to announce very soon. We’re continuing to focus on providing Greater Victoria with a variety of local and national retailers and services.”

Two new fashion boutiques have opened on Uptown Boulevard, Meraki and No. 1016, along with local fashion design house Chai Fashions, housewares retailer MJ Vogue and Reflex Supplements which offers sports nutrition products. Power House Living Food Co., a juice bar with a raw food menu, has opened in  Uptown’s Town Plaza, along with Maison Beige, which offers authentic Belgian waffles and fresh sandwiches made to order.

 

On Uptown’s upper levels, West Coast Medical Imaging has relocated its X-ray clinic next to Rebalance MD’s expanded location. Steve Nash Fitness World has also completed a 5,000 square foot expansion that includes additional fitness space and a child minding service.
