The Five Points South Historic Entertainment District location will attract a large crowd, as it is one of the city's hotspots for shopping, restaurants and nightlife establishments. Following the first week of operation, there will be a ribbon-cutting celebration on November 30th with Mayor William Bell.

"I fell in love with WOB Culture in 2009 at the original Westchase location", said Shah. "It immediately caught my eye and I have been attracted to the atmosphere and positive energy in each and every WOB I have been in."

WOB Five Points has planned ongoing promotions and entertainment, which can be viewed at With a focus solely on craft beer, WOB Five Points will serve food from local restaurants including Cosmo's, SekiSui, Pacific Rim Sushi, Makario's, Wings Around the Clock, Metro Prime Steakhouse, Fuego, Jimmy Johns Sandwiches, and Pop's Neighborhood Grille.

WOB was founded in Tampa, FL in 2007. Now, just five years later, they have just launched their 33rd location in Birmingham, AL.
