Parlour opening in Wick''s building

Parlour Pizza, a restaurant concept that started in downtown Jeffersonville, is opening its third location in the former Wick’s Pizza building in downtown New Albany.

NEW ALBANY — Parlour Pizza will soon open its third area location, this time in the former Wick’s Pizza building in downtown New Albany.

Parlour opened in 2017 near the Big Four Bridge in downtown Jeffersonville, and, in September it opened a second location on Frankfort Avenue in Louisville. Craft Culture Concepts Development Group, Parlour’s owner, announced Monday that Parlour New Albany will be at 225 State Street.

Wick’s Pizza, which had been in downtown New Albany since 2009, closed its doors in May. Parlour’s new restaurant will open in mid-November.

The New Albany location will be Parlour’s largest location yet, and the building’s second floor will feature a music hall and private event space. Renovations are ongoing in the historic downtown New Albany building.

Parlour owner Max Bloom said the pizza business has been “resilient” amid the pandemic and “community support has been incredible.

“It will be great music with great food,” he said. “We look forward to getting it open and bringing our offerings and our brand to New Albany.”

The restaurant will feature “fan favorites” and options for vegetarians and vegans, a news release said. Parlour’s menu includes New York-style pizzas, garlic breadsticks, smoked wings and calzones, along with a large selection of beer, cocktails and wine. Carryout and delivery options also will be available.

Bloom said the New Albany space has a larger kitchen, and he expects eventually to expand the menu to include pasta and other new options.

The restaurant’s hours will be 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.

“We couldn’t be more excited for our third Parlour location to be in New Albany,” Bloom said in the news release. “The 16,000 [square foot] building allows us to really get creative with the Parlour brand and bring even more excitement into the restaurant.

“Aside from our unique pizzas and hand-picked drink menus, we’re working hard to craft a welcoming and fun place for guests to have a great experience while placing a large emphasis on bringing live music to the area.”

Parlour New Albany has scheduled a live music event for its music hall. The Juice Box Heroes are to perform from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Nov. 27.
