Richmond restaurant gets new name, concept
By Mark Robinson
RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – A longtime Fan bar will soon reopen with a new look, a new name and a lot more beer. Social 52 Kitchen & Craft Bar is replacing Avalon Restaurant & Bar at 2619 W. Main St. Owners Walied Sanie and James Baldwin bought the business in March from Peter Harahn, who also owns nearby Bamboo.
The pair closed the business in early June to renovate and rebrand the restaurant, Sanie said.
