The Mediterranean is getting a little closer to the Midwest.
The restaurant, located at 1701 N. Ironwood Drive in South Bend, intends to have a soft opening on Thursday, with a grand opening event planned for this weekend.
Lunch will be available every day of the weekend in a relaxed casual atmosphere, but in the evenings Arabesk will transform into more of a nightlife destination.
Arabesk will be offering not only traditional Mediterranean food, but a hookah lounge and live entertainment, too — think Moroccan music and belly dancers. On weeknights, the atmosphere will focus on being a spot for folks to grab a cocktail or a craft beer, while weekend evenings will see live entertainment, the Tribune reports.
On a standard Thursday night of there will be a cover charge of $10, but the restaurant/venue is waiving the fee tomorrow and offering reduced cover of $15 on Friday.
The restaurant will be open from noon to midnight Sunday to Wednesday, and from noon to 3 a.m. Thursday to Saturday, and is only open to people 21 and older, according to Arabesk’s website.
