Union Restaurant & GameYard moves ahead

Fencing was placed Wednesday around the site of the future Union Restaurant & GameYard, a planned family destination restaurant/game area at Pearl and West Chestnut streets in downtown Jeffersonville.

The new venue is being developed by Steve Resch and Chad Sprigler; the business concept comes from Bobby Bass of Southern Hospitality and Levi Donaldson, one of the co-creators of MESA in New Albany.

Construction is expected to start this winter with plans are to open by Derby, the first weekend in May.
