The owners of neighboring bars Oak Wine Bar and Ale on Oak sold both establishments in November to a group of partners who have united the two bars to create Oak & Ale. This isn’t the first two-concepts-in-one rodeo for the new owners. David Demarest, Morgan Scalco, and Jillian Arena come from ownership and management at Bayou Beer Garden and Bayou Wine Garden, another set of neighboring wine and beer bars located in Mid-City.

Fans of the former Oak Wine Bar and Ale on Oak should know that the staff and overall concepts will largely remain the same at Oak & Ale. The unified bar will now have joint seating outdoors and patrons can now run a tab that carries between the two different bars. According to NOLA.com, the new owners plan to make a few expansions over the coming months, including a new game room on the ‘beer side’ and a new outdoor space for crawfish boils.

The new Oak & Ale is just one of many new concepts that have recently opened on Oak Street, including a new Vietnamese street food spot and a new brewpub. Sadly, the popular Seafood Sally’s restaurant recently closed its doors at 8400 Oak St.
