Good Company announces pop-ups at The Vandy to preview spring opening in the Grove

Cocktail bar Good Company has announced two pop-ups at The Vandy at 1301 S. Vandeventer Ave. to preview its forthcoming spring launch. Good Company is aiming for an early April opening in the former Layla space at 4317 Manchester Ave. in the Grove.

The first Good Company pop-up will take place this Sunday, Feb. 18, from 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. A second pop-up will follow during the same hours on Feb. 25. The Good Company bar team will take over the cocktail menu to give customers a taste of what’s in store for their drink list.

The popups will also offer a limited food menu to tease what owner Jordan Goodman has described as an “approachable, chef-driven menu featuring burgers and a unique twist of gastropub fare.” Top of the popup menu is Good Company’s signature Good Burger, which features Creekstone Farms’ brisket and chuck beef blend, thick-cut bacon, Cooper white American cheese, the bar’s “Good Sauce,” pickles and a fried egg. Also on the menu are fries, a beet salad, and brown butter chocolate chip cookies from Poot’s Provisions. Tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and food will be available all day or until it sells out.

Good Company is the latest venture from the team behind premium ice company Good Ice. Led by Jordan Goodman, Good Ice supplies restaurants, bars and private clients with custom-made and personalized ice in a range of shapes and sizes. Good Company will feature an ice station where customers can watch ice cubes being hand-chipped before their eyes while they sip on a cocktail.
