Saxapahaw, North Carolina

Set within the former Dixie Yarn Mill in Saxapahaw, the Eddy Pub has quickly established itself as a popular destination for both out-of-town visitors and community residents alike.

The space retains its original masonry walls, sturdy wooden beams, and concrete floor. Period furniture, collected by the owner, is used to furnish the main space, and glass bottles have been repurposed as lighting fixtures over the bar. Reclaimed maple flooring has been fashioned into table tops, and an old spring-loaded yarn storage bin forms a peninsular seating area off the bar. Metal piping and salvaged spindles have been utilized as beer tap columns and handles, and Redwood slats from mill cooling towers line the walls to soften the sound.

A new exterior balcony on the west side of the space is cantilevered toward the river and provides an optimal spot to grab a bite and view the sun setting over the Piedmont.
