The Hampton Social, a Chicago-based restaurant, will bring the laid-back East Coast Hampton vibes right here to Orlando next year. This breezy, front porch-friendly concept will be opening at Pointe Orlando, an outdoor dining and entertainment destination on International Drive, in the former Tommy Bahama building.
The Hampton Social has been featured in InStyle magazine as one of the top five happy hour spots in Chicago with guests digging the nautical white interior, live acoustic music and their half-priced rose’ and pizza specials. They have also been voted one of the “100 Best Brunch Spots in the US” by OpenTable and offer mouth-watering menu items such as Chicken & Doughnuts for brunch, Truffle Pappardelle for dinner and of course, Rose’ all day, featuring a rotating selection of the fabulous pink wine. Their coastal cuisine and summer-themed craft cocktails will add to Pointe Orlando’s vacation vibe.
“Pointe Orlando is excited to welcome this fresh concept to the Pointe for the local resident foodie, but also the business and leisure traveler who want a chill place to grab a drink,” said Chris Ralph, Vice President of Leasing for Brixmor Property Group. “It’s important for us to bring the kind of restaurants that our guests will enjoy and want to share with their friends.”
Founded in 2015, The Hampton Social currently operates two locations in the greater Chicago area, with two more slated to open in Illinois and one in Naples, Florida.
Hampton Social will join recently announced Hopdoddy Burger Bar, an Austin-based upscale burger restaurant named one of “The Best Burgers in America” by Food & Wine magazine. Hopdoddy will also be opening their first Florida location at Pointe Orlando later this year.
