Black Market Bar
Black Market Bar & Grill is a bar and grill with two locations in Birmingham.
The original Black Market Bar is located at 3411 Colonnade Parkway and opened in January 2009. It is owned by George Cowgill and Elise Youngblood, who also operated Speakeasy 1920 in downtown Birmingham.
Black Market Bar serves lunch dinner on Monday through Saturday and offers a Sunday Brunch featuring "Southern Mimosas" (Miller High Life and orange juice).
In 2012 a second location was opened by Cowgill and Youngblood in the Shepherd-Sloss building at 2011 Highland Avenue in the Five Points South neighborhood. In 2015 they relocated to the building facing Five Points Circle in front of Pickwick Plaza.
