Something New in Rountree
If you’ve been anywhere near the intersection of Pickwick and Cherry in recent days, chances are you’ve noticed some changes. The old home of the temporarily-shuttered Culture Counter now has a bold black exterior and is occupied by the retail store Culture Flock. However, there are also some changes brewing at a different building around the corner at 1424 E. Cherry, where at night, two artfully designed neon signs posted up in the windows will definitely catch your eye.
This will be the future headquarters of Good Spirits & Company, which has brought us popular locales like The Golden Girl Rum Club, Cherry Picker Package x Fare, Best of Luck Beer Hall, Sweet Boy’s Neighborhood Bar and the in-progress Loose Goose. Now for the part that impacts you: The first floor of the building features a beautiful back bar with fine touches of Missouri-sourced wood and Italian marble. Joshua Widner, business manager and owner of Good Spirits & Company, tells us they plan on hosting pop-up food and beverage events in this space about once a month, and you’ll be able to rent it out for your own special events. The new headquarters will serve as a hub where the team can work on future concepts they have up their sleeves for Springfield and Northwest Arkansas.
