Elevated Sports Bar, Cork & Batter, Coming Soon To The Lighthouse District
Cork & Batter is coming to Seaport Village! The Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners has approved a ten-year deal for the elevated full-service restaurant and sports bar concept.
Cork & Batter will offer a first-class dining experience in a warm bungalow-themed environment with American fare created with freshly sourced ingredients, craft beer, wine, and hand-crafted cocktails.
“This is a home run. If you’re looking for delicious food, a good cold beverage, and a place to cheer on your favorite San Diego sports team, Cork and Batter will have that along with the San Diego Bay views and vibrant, friendly atmosphere we all love at Seaport Village,” said Chairman Dan Malcolm, Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners.
Cork & Batter will be operated by BNG Hospitality Group, a Los Angeles-based restaurant management and marketing company that is currently refreshing and rebranding its entire lineup of 3rd Base locations to Cork and Batter – new name, same great experience.
“Cork and Batter currently operates in the heart of Inglewood’s entertainment and sports district, across the street from Sofi Stadium and directly in front of Intuit Dome, future home of Los Angeles Clippers. We are actively expanding this concept into other cities around the country, including nearby Simi Valley, as well as Boston, Miami, and Atlanta. Whether you are joining us to cheer on your favorite team or just looking to enjoy a variety of tasty food and cocktails, Cork and Batter is the destination for locals and tourists alike,” said Drew Gates, BNG’s managing partner.
BNG Hospitality manages and operates a number of restaurants throughout Southern California, including Hollywood’s iconic Yamashiro restaurant, and Cork and Batter Inglewood.
At Seaport Village, Cork and Batter will anchor Suite E3 in the Lighthouse District, encompassing approximately 7,989 square feet of indoor restaurant space along with a patio and courtyard area. The Port anticipates Cork and Batter will help draw more visitors to the Lighthouse District and continue to elevate the existing dining and shopping experiences at the shopping center.
Since assuming ownership of Seaport Village in 2018, the Port has worked in close coordination with property manager Protea Property Management, Inc. and broker Retail Insite to transform Seaport Village into a vibrant waterfront destination along the San Diego bayfront for locals and visitors.
As a result of these collaborative efforts, Seaport Village features mostly locally owned and operated businesses with a mix of old and new favorites. A buzz-worthy lineup of new tenants includes Louisiana Charlie’s, Tuk Tuk Eatery, Mike Hess Brewing, and Eclectique Boutique.
