Have you heard of The SwitchYard on 14th? It’s a new outdoor restaurant that’s the latest addition to Regions Field. The Birmingham Barons eatery is located under the iconic Birmingham sign off 14th Street South. It’s a food, beverage, and outdoor venue where families can enjoy games and meals together.
“The range of development around Regions Field and the entire city center have been both impressive and unexpected over the past several years,” said Birmingham Barons owner Jeff Logan. “We have been exploring ways to continue our investment in and around the ballpark for some time now, and we are thrilled that we found the perfect fit — The SwitchYard on 14th.”
Regions Field partnered with Macknally Land Design and Appleseed Workshop to design and build the space, which will feature two airstream trailers – a Foodstream and a Barstream. The airstream trailers will be built by Silverliner, a new company in Birmingham that refurbishes vintage airstreams.
The Foodstream now offers a gastro pub-type menu that has a variety of menu options for kids and adults. The Barstream boasts 20 draft beers on tap along with a full bar. Draft beer options include a selection of Birmingham craft beer along with other options that will rotate on a timely basis.
A regulation size bocce ball court, ping pong tables, and other outdoor games will be a unique feature of The SwitchYard on 14th. This new venture will include uniquely designed shades and furniture to provide a true outdoor space for private parties, fundraising groups, and corporate events. The full operating hours of The SwitchYard on 14th are still to be determined.
The SwitchYard on 14th name is consistent with many railroad-themed areas in the Parkside District and is one of many additions to the area since Railroad Park opened in September 2010. You can call the SwitchYard on 14th at (205) 988-3200. It’s located at Regions Field, 1401 1st Avenue South, Birmingham, Alabama 35233.
