Camp House Moving To Onion Bottom, Partnering With Bread And Butter Of Red Bank

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Officials of the Camp House said they are moving in February from the current location in the Volunteer Building Garage on MLK Boulevard.

The new location will be a permanent home at the new Onion Bottom Station on 12th Street.

The Camp House at the same time has entered a partnership with Bread and Butter, of Red Bank. It will provide pastries, sandwiches, quiches and salads to be served as the Camp House.

Alex Whitman and Victoria Capdevielle opened Bread and Butter in late 2016, and it features locally sourced ingredients.

Onion Bottom Station is at the old Farmers Market district. It is located on 12th Street in the former Dixie Savings warehouse.

The Camp House was founded in 2009 as a coffeeshop on Williams Street in the Southside.

It later moved to renovated space at the current MLK Boulevard location.

The Camp House is "a space where creatives, entrepreneurs, university students, friends, and families can work, meet, collaborate, and gather around great food and drink. After hours, the Camp House serves as a venue for community gatherings, concerts, banquets, and other private events."

Such evil has been unfathomable to me. Yesterday ... (click for more)
