Take a Look Inside SoBro’s Breathtaking New Southern Brasserie

Liberty Common is a refreshing downtown escape

SoBro’s new Southern brasserie from Terry Raley and Amaranth Hospitality opened the last week of December, and it’s a breathtaking sight to behold. Liberty Common, across from Ascend Amphitheater is an all-day cafe, restaurant, and bar that occupies 6,100-square-feet at 207 1st Avenue South, churning out French dishes with Southern flair from executive chef Jeffrey Rhodes alongside Robin Riddell Jones’ biodynamic wine list.

The design at Liberty Common draws inspiration from Raley’s travels, and borrows from essential elements of the traditional brasserie. It features large copper pendants dangling above the dining room — they were originally hung in a factory outside Paris. Raley had them shipped in from Europe and refitted for American standards. Opal glass sconces, and marble architectural features, plus modern accents and vibrant pops of color complete the space beautifully. The restaurant seats 200 indoors and an additional 50 on its traditional French cafe-style patio lining 1st Avenue South. They offer valet parking plus self-parking in the building’s adjacent garage.

Liberty Common is open Monday-Friday at 7:30 a.m and Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m.
