The New Anthem brewery space in the downtown Raleigh's Smoky Hollow development won't be empty long.

Driving the news: Tyler Helikson, a co-founder of the local fast-casual chain Happy + Hale and owner of Madre, is doubling down on Kane Realty's Smoky Hollow, one of Raleigh's newest mixed-use developments.

What's next: A name hasn't yet been revealed, but it is being described as a "neighborhood bar" with cocktails, a draft beer and wine list and snacks.

Catch up quick: Less than a year after it opened, the highly rated Wilmington brewery New Anthem's Raleigh expansion closed, with its owners citing its debt load and the lingering effects of the pandemic hurting its ability to stay open.
