Cullman Warehouse District Groundbreaking Culinary Social Venue

Mae’s Food Hall … An exciting culinary and social venue is coming to the historic Cullman’s ‘Warehouse District’ this year.

Speculation has been circulating for several months about a new food and social entertainment operation potentially landing in Cullman.

Those rumors have now moved past the speculative stage into the realm of previous structure demolition, physical planning, and building construction as well as internal layout, available culinary/social content and interior ambiance.

The new venue will be called: Mae’s Food Hall

The establishment will feature the finest in foods and drinks. In addition, the venue is expected to go well beyond multiple arrays of food/drink into the realm of adult play and arcade attractions as well.

It will become a place where ‘Eat, Drink and Play Collide!’

The precise food menu and drink selections have not yet been 100% solidified. It is believed that the roster will be largely compromised of select, unique and diverse chefs and business owners from around the area. What is known is that almost all interior space inside the new facility has been claimed by the soon-to-be announced individual eateries.

Top architects, interior designers and construction companies from Cullman, Birmingham and Nashville are all focused on making Mae’s Food Hall a truly word-class venue that rivals establishments in any large metropolitan area.

It is expected that the Cullman Warehouse District merchants will be the prime beneficiary of the expected huge upswing in foot traffic this new location will generate. The principle parties involved behind the venture have made ‘Adding To Downtown Cullman’ one of their prime directives from Day One.

Shane Quick of Premier Productions fame is one of several active participants in the creative process with this project. He is excited and visionary about the economic and cultural impact the Food Hall concept will bring to Cullman:

“Mae’s will be world-class in every way. I suspect many people will end up spending 3 hours inside and when they leave, they’ll feel like they have only been there for 20 minutes. This will be a true destination spot on a level Cullman has never before seen.


Beyond the obvious culinary, drink and social attractions, I am most excited about the concept of a ‘food hall’. Such a concept effectively becomes an incubator for inspired, promsing, talented chefs to hone their craft in an enviroment that does not force them to break the bank or risk their entire life savings in a full out restuarant investment. I believe Cullman will see a number of new resturants spring up over the next several years with their initial birth occurring right inside Mae’s Food Hall.”
