Urban Wine Company in the Old Market is changing things up.
The bar and restaurant, located at 1037 Jones St., has a new owner and is under new management. The business was purchased by Janet Van ceWalle in August. Since that time, the staff has undergone a complete overhaul, and the menu will soon follow.
The bar and restaurant will change its name to Bricks and Mortar Bar and Bistro.
Van deWalle said she is changing the name because many people thought that the business offered only wine, which is not the case. It also provides cocktails and food.
The name change will take place sometime soon. The bar is open 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
