New bar, distillery planned for Asheville’s South Slope


There are plans in the works to turn the former Elff auto repair shop at 151 Coxe Ave. on Asheville’s South Slope into a new bar and distillery.

A new bar is planned for this lot on Asheville’s South Slope. This view is from Federal Alley at the rear of the lot, which faces Coxe Avenue at the front.

The property sits between the Wicked Weed Brewing’s Funkatorium and Swannanoa Cleaners. The property includes a building designed to service vehicles, but the plan is to build a new structure that would including a kitchen and full bar, as well as roof-top seating. The style of the building will be Prohibition-era. The bar will feature modern and classic cocktails, a full wine list and beer taps.

More as I get it.
