Battery Park Pub to Open in Former Graffiti, Reddstone, Snickers… Space

Graffiti Social Kitchen closed its doors in the Battery Park neighborhood this past October. On Wednesday August 1, Battery Park Pub (1261 W. 76th St.) will take its place. Prior to Graffiti, the iconic Detroit Shoreway property was home to Reddstone, a casual pub that was a frequent destination for the new owner.

“Reddstone used to be one of my favorite places, and now I get to host it, which is quite an honor,” says Garrett Moeller.

Moeller and his business partner Seung “Jay” Choi have decades of industry experience between the two of them, and their goal for the bar is a return to simpler times.

“Our concept is to bring an affordable approach to the neighborhood,” Moeller explains. “The feedback we’re getting from the neighborhood is that the previous restaurant was great but a little too pricey for them to go to on a regular basis. They want more of a pub atmosphere, so we’re going back to basics.”

All but a few craft cocktails and craft drafts will be replaced by domestics and popular imports like Guinness. In terms of food, diners can expect an approachable mix of chestnuts like burger melts, fried chicken, tacos and a nice variety of vegetarian options. What makes the menu unique, says Moeller, is that it will be 100-percent gluten-free.

“I figure if you can do it, why not,” he says.

The bulk of the action will be reserved to the main floor bar and patio, with events like karaoke, trivia and private events taking up residence in the second floor dining room. In winter, weekend brunches might take root up there as well.

Moeller says that the restaurant will undergo some cosmetic tweaks to better fit with their approach, with creative metal workers fabricating new décor, furnishings and signage.

“The look will be kind steampunk-ish; we’re tying in that whole battery theme,” he notes.
