That space on the edge of Five Points, once a former church, has been a lot of things over the years. For decades, it was home to Tosh's Hacienda, a Mexican joint that got its start in a little storefront around the corner. From there, it moved on to become Kiva, Blackberries Bar and the unfortunately named Swallows. In 2011, it was transformed into Eden.
The three-story spot (with two patios) was turned into a veritable garden of Eden and dubbed "a women's bar for everyone." And then it proceeded to prove it with an expansive menu heavy on vegetarian and vegan cuisine; it became particularly popular as a brunch destination.
The building, which is now owned by the folks behind Tracks, also booked plenty of eclectic shows and private parties -- some of which are now scrambling for other spots.
We'll keep you posted on updates.
