It’s a funky space filled with urban designer clothes, art, graffiti, hip hop music and the kind of cocktails that legends are made of – and now Common Eatery will deliver a slice of its low key glam to the Ottawa Wine and Food Festival.
Since opening several years ago on Elgin Street, Common Concept – which now includes the original clothing store, a Morning Owl coffee shop, hair dressing salon and fine dining restaurant – has become a hub for hipsters aged 19 to 90.
“We wanted to have a place where people can spend the day without feeling like they were loitering. They can shop, eat, have a meeting over coffee and be inspired,” says Warren Frederick, who co-owns Common with Nader Salib.
For the festival, Warren will offer three signature cocktails, mushroom steam buns, pork and chive dumplings and meatballs. On Friday night, Common will host the after-party at their restaurant.
“We’re bringing a little piece of us to the festival.”
