The New American Tavern
The New American Taverns will be gastropub/civic centers that foster social capital and direct it for public benefit.
Our taverns will be their community’s social hub and unofficial civic center. Purpose-built and programmed to foster and direct social capital our taverns will ensure neighborhoods have welcoming “third places” in which citizens can unwind, learn and connect. To accomplish this we will design to foster dialogue; host community programming; and leverage trained staff to instill a culture of informed exchange, reciprocity and active citizenship.
