For this week’s Thirsty Thursday, AY About You visits with Kendall Case from The Hangout!
The Hangout is located on Maumelle Boulevard, and was formerly known as “SoBo”, which was featured on Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back last year. The establishment has been completely rebranded and upgraded.
The Hangout has three owners including Kevin Case, the owner of Sauce(d) Bar and Oven; Chad Jones, the owner of Mexico Chiquito; and Alvin Watkins, the owner of The Butcher Shop. Each owner brings years of experience in the service industry to The Hangout.
Kendall Case is in management at The Hangout. She tells us that many people ask if The Hangout is family-friendly, and Case confirms that yes, it is.
Case mentions some of the drinks that are customer favorites.
“Our frozen drinks have been a big hit since we opened in September of this year. Our flavors include Strawberry Frose and The Hangout Punch, which is our own spin on a Pina Colada,” Case says. “We pride ourselves in offering happy hour pricing all day, every day. All of our beer and wine is priced very well, and we just want people to come in and enjoy themselves.”
Case also tells us more about the cuisine at The Hangout. “The Prime Rib Sliders are a fan favorite. Steak Night Friday’s have also been very successful. We are launching Sunday Brunch within the next few weeks, so stay tuned for those details on our social media pages,” she says.
The Hangout has several features that make the venue unique.
“We have a massive patio area that is air conditioned. Our patio features several sliding garage doors that can be opened during nice weather. Our customers have really been enjoying this during football season,” Case explains. “The Hangout provides one of Maumelle’s only live music venues with bands playing a few times a month. The live music schedule can be found on our social media pages as well.”
Case mentions the upcoming changes to The Hangout’s menu will be brunch related.
“The next changes to our menu will be the addition of Sunday Brunch options and rotating frozen drinks based on the season. We are collaborating with a local brewery to produce our very own “The Hangout – Pale Ale” that will be available in a few weeks for a limited time,” Case says. “During the upcoming Holiday season, we will be offering smoked meats for all of your holiday gatherings.”
