The Hampton Social just closed on a deal to lease 8,621 square feet at Mary Brickell Village. It will operate in the space that previously housed Fado Irish Pub, a popular drinking establishment that operated at 901 S. Miami Ave. for eight years before closing down in 2019. Founded by Parker Restaurant Group CEO Brad Parker, The Hampton Social is a casual restaurant and bar chain headquartered in Chicago. Currently, there are eight Hampton Socials operating in Illinois, Tennessee, and Florida, with the two Sunshine State locations situated in Naples and Orlando. The Hampton Social is also slated to open in the Atlantic Crossing project in Delray Beach.
John Ellis, managing director of Newmark's Miami office, represented the landlord, a subsidiary of Dallas real estate investment firm Rockpoint Group. Keith Rogers of Detroit-based Restaurant Development Advisors represented The Hampton Social. Chicago architect Mark Knauer will design the space.
Built in 2007, Mary Brickell Village has 200,000 square feet of retail, including a 29,000-square-foot Publix Super Markets store, a 38,000-square-foot LA Fitness Signature Club, and restaurants such as Moxies, Balans, Shake Shack, PF Changs, and Blue Martini. The ground-floor retail at Mary Brickell Village is 94% leased and the asking price is $70 a square foot, stated a spokesman for Newmark.
Rockpoint Group paid $113.46 million for the property in September 2015. Quebec-based Ivanhoe Cambridge, developer of Mary Brickell Village, paid $6.49 million for the 1.11-acre property in June 2000.
