The City of Mobile is seeking proposals to establish and operate a vibrant riverfront restaurant and beverage concession on the Mobile River centered in the GulfQuest National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico, 155 South Water Street, Mobile, Alabama and extending into Cooper Riverside Park on the west bank of the Mobile River.
The City intends the concession facility to be a core attraction that will complement both the museum experience and a new vendor market to be established in the Park. The restaurant design element may include a theme of a casual seafood offering that includes a “container bar” on the promenade at the north end of GulfQuest along the riverfront (See Exhibit A, Conceptual Drawing). The City will offer exclusive riverfront space for lease or license in GulfQuest and Cooper Riverside Park for the vendor selected with the design, experience, and business plan that best complements the City's vision for a successful riverfront food, beverage, and entertainment destination.
Proposals Due: December 4, 2018
Optional Pre-Proposal Meeting/Site Visit: 1:00 pm, November 5, 2018
Location: GulfQuest National Maritime Museum, 155 Water Street, Mobile, Alabama.
