A full-service entertainment venue featuring live music, upscale food, and craft cocktails is now open in Ocala.
The District Bar and Kitchen, which is located at 110 SW Broadway Street on the former site of Pi on Broadway, has begun a series of soft opening weeks in the lead up to its grand opening later this fall.
The kitchen serves dinner on Monday through Saturday, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Diners can start their meals with a variety of appetizers that include “shake and bake” wings, grilled cheese bites, rueben egg rolls, grouper tacos, corn flake tenders, and poke tuna nachos. There are also several salads to choose from as well as homemade tomato soup.
The menu offers four different Detroit-style pizzas: classic pepperoni, margherita, buffalo chicken, and bison and goat cheese.
Additional entrees include steak frites, bourbon salmon, and a variety of burgers and sandwiches such as The District (a brisket and short rib beef blend with American cheese, caramelized onions, roasted garlic aioli, and sweet hotty pickles) and Pig Mac (ground pork, American cheese, a special DBK sauce, iceberg lettuce, and pickles on a sesame seed bun).
Side options include french fries, black truffle Parmesan fries, collard greens, deep fried Brussel sprouts, and cheesy grits.
On Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the kitchen also serves brunch. Meal options include smoked salmon lox, millionaire’s bacon, shrimp and grits, french toast, salmon omelets, steak and eggs, and sausage gravy pizza, to list a few choices. Diners can wash down their meal with a mimosa or cocktail.
In addition to food and drinks, the District Bar and Kitchen also provides live entertainment. As the grand opening nears, the venue is looking for musicians and DJs to build relationships and book future opportunities. Anyone interested can contact the venue via email at: Info@DistrictBK.com.
“We’re all about creating a friendly, welcoming, and approachable atmosphere, where you can enjoy great music, delicious food, and connect with a positive community,” stated the District Bar and Kitchen on its Facebook page.
