Vintage Café Opens in Historic Regions Bank Building in Montgomery, AL

Amidst Montgomery, Alabama’s reemergence, Vintage Hospitality Group recently brought Vintage Café to the Old Cloverdale neighborhood in the former Regions Bank building. Serving Monday-Saturday from 7am–5pm, Vintage Café has grab-and-go offerings as well as indoor/outdoor seating and a drive-thru window for customers to enjoy Stumptown Coffee Roasters specialty coffees, Steven Smith Teamaker teas, fresh juices, smoothies, beer, wine, a variety of healthy food choices and a retail area full of blends, gifts and accessories. The space was created for everyone in the neighborhood from moms grabbing a quick bite or smoothie after school to professionals working remotely or getting a cup of joe on the way to the office.

“At Vintage Café, our team is committed to providing a crisp level of service that is prompt and polite,” said General Manager Bryan Wooden. “Welcoming each of our guests into our comfortable environment coupled with our quality offerings are the ingredients to providing the preferred Vintage Café experience. This is our contribution and commitment to our community.”

Built in 1955, the two story, former Regions and First National Bank building is owned by Café proprietor Jud Blount and his uncle, Tom Blount. Prior to transforming this historic building, the elder Blount, a retired architect, also designed the Alabama Shakespeare Festival and Blount Cultural Park in addition to several other buildings internationally. The sleek, modern interior design was done by Laura Dockery Design while the renovation was brought to life by R.F. Pruett Construction. Working together, the team refurbished the bank’s terrazzo floors, transformed the teller window into a drive thru and re-purposed safety deposit boxes along the counter. Guests will see other elements of the old bank including a working camera in the height chart by the entrance, the depository box, and metal vault gate. Additionally, the second-floor mezzanine that overlooks the entrance is next to a private room that is available for daytime meetings as well as receptions and cocktail parties at night.

Vintage Hospitality Group brings Vintage Café to the Old Cloverdale neighborhood located at 416 Cloverdale Road. The team of Proprietor Jud Blount, Executive Chef Eric Rivera and General Manager Bryan Wooden has over 45 years of combined experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry. While Vintage Hospitality Group’s flagship restaurant Vintage Year is a fine dining establishment, Vintage Café is a coffee shop, daytime eatery and retail store. Vintage Hospitality Group is dedicated to providing guests with the finest culinary selections, premium coffees, specialty teas, outstanding wines and spirits along with excellent customer service.
