The River Market in Little Rock already has that Dickson Street vibe with several places along the stretch having a significant Fayetteville influence. Now one of Dickson Street’s most popular bars is heading to Little Rock in Cannibal and Craft.
Cannibal and Craft opened in Fayetteville in 2015 bringing one of the only true Tiki lounges to the state. The concept is owned by Charis Brenneman and Willy D’s owner Danny Brown, which made the Little Rock River Market addition a natural fit.
“This is a project that we have been working on diligently since the beginning of 2020,” Brenneman says in a release. “We are devoted to bringing life and energy to Little Rock’s River Market. Together we introduce Cannibal and Craft as something neither the River Market nor any of Little Rock has experienced to this day.”
The Little Rock location will be two part starting with a street level craft cocktail bar focusing on classic cocktails and food offerings like jerk chicken quesadillas, steak frites, shrimp chimichurri, and more.
Meanwhile, things get a little crazy upstairs with their Cannibal side. This is meant to be a full on tiki bar and nightclub along with “vip services” that include a booth and bottle services, and a nightly DJ.
Cannibal and Craft will go into the former Ernie Biggs location at 307 President Clinton Avenue that they have been renovating for the better part of the year now. The official open date is Friday, October 23rd and will be open Tuesday – Wednesday 3pm – 11pm; Thursday – Saturday 3pm – 2am.
