Expanding Culinary Boundaries

Redefining the food scene one offering at a time

Future of food

Where delicious is redefined every day. You can linger over a 4-course, conceptual pop-up brunch, clink glasses before belting out your favorite karaoke tune, or revel in the latest in mobile cuisine. With thousands of high-tech, healthcare, and state employees within blocks of BullStreet and burgeoning neighborhoods nearby, there is plenty of appetite for what the district has to offer.
The BullStreet District offers local and nationally acclaimed restaurateurs the opportunity to expand their culinary experiments in a city on the rise. With a growing food scene and a bevy of new chefs choosing to innovate in Columbia, S.C., BullStreet offers the endless opportunities to continue to push the envelope for food in one of the most progressive cities in the Southeast.

Essential Brewing

Located adjacent to the REI Co-op, Starbucks opened a 2,500-square-foot freestanding store in January 2021, right off the reconfigured Freed Street. The International coffee retailer offers outdoor patio seating and a drive through lane for the 46,700 commuters passing on Bull Street each day. Neighboring the new Starbucks store will be Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, slated to open in the fall of 2022. Opening its second location in South Carolina, the 7,500 square-foot brewery and restaurant will offer craft beers, great food, and quality service, featuring an on-site brewing facility, a bar area, dining room and outdoor seating for its customers.
