After eight great years owning and operating the Castleberry Hill mainstay, the brothers Jakob have decided to start a new chapter in their lives. Yes, Elliott Street Pub is for sale and could be yours (along with the secrets behind their incredibly addictive Slawich).
When Mike and Pete Jakob first purchased 51 Elliott Street in Castleberry Hill, they weren't envisioning a life-long investment – or careers for that matter. Their original agenda? To transform the 4,000 square foot historic building into a deli and pub where patrons could expect convivial hobnobbing, drinking, tomfoolery and community (not to mention a damn fine Slawich). Now, eight years later, the brothers can only think one thing: mission accomplished. And with the new Falcons stadium slated to move into the neighborhood (which already includes the CNN Center, Phillips Arena and the World Congress Convention campus), there couldn't be a better time to sell.
All three floors of 51 Elliott Street are built commercially (though the brothers themselves currently reside on the second floor). Plus, the brothers have already done the legwork of securing permits with the Urban Design Committee for a pre-designed fourth floor, so if the next owner needs more legroom in the space, he or she can get to work on expansion straight-away. The pub, already firmly planted in its community, comes complete with dedicated regulars, a fully-developed mouthwatering menu of sandwiches, and thirty pre-scheduled events a year. The space, which contains an enclosed patio and dual-entrance basement known as 'The 51,' regularly hosts a variety of musical acts, including a 40-piece jazz band on Tuesdays. The cherry on top? The lucky duck who scores this space also secures ownership of Elliott Street's famed iron pour.
But wait, there's more! The brothers Jakob will provide a 90-day personal intensive training with the purchase of the property and pub. What exactly will that entail? Well if you've ever wondered what magic goes into creating one of their signature Slawiches, French Dips or Moscow Mules – this may be your one and only opportunity to find out. In addition to culinary training the brothers are down-right gurus when it comes to hobnobbing, business operations and general contracting. In summation: under their guidance – the world is your oyster. After the 90-day intensive the brothers Jakob plan to purchase themselves a bona fide sailboat and take to the ocean to sail around Central America. Who knows? Maybe after your eight year tenure at Elliott Street passes, you could pass the knowledge along and join them.
