A Little Bit About Our History

About Raduno Brick Oven & Barroom in Little Rock, Arkansas
Learning about redevelopment plans for the Joseph Jung/G.P. Kordsmeir building located at 1318 S Main in downtown Little Rock, the owners of Raduno Brick Oven & Barroom began their work to open a new restaurant and bar concept in the neighborhood, locally known as SOMA (South Main District). The historic property once housed the Rose City Bakery. It later served as the original home of Community Bakery, a SOMA District staple. Years later the building was occupied by bars La’Changes and then Pleazures. However, it slowly fell into a state of disrepair. The roof had collapsed in the back and all the windows, wiring and plumbing needed replacing. Slowly, the building was completely rehabilitated into a mixed-use building that includes law offices upstairs and our restaurant with an outdoor dining patio on the ground level.

 

Raduno, which initially opened as Piro Brick Oven & Barroom, offers Neapolitan-style pizzas and gourmet soups, salads, and sandwiches. The eats are accompanied by 20 different craft beers on tap, 4 wines on tap, an extensive wine selection, as well as a full-fledged signature cocktail menu. The atmosphere is deliberately causal, and the interior meshes a modern feel with a historic throwback such as the reclaimed wooden floors that were once old 18 wheeler trailers beds, hanging Edison light bulb fixtures, and a 36-foot antique brick bar capped with marble framed with antique brick and white oak wood. The name Raduno aptly translates as a “place of gathering” or “to rally around a common cause”; in this case, that cause is a great dining experience in a blossoming historic neighborhood in downtown Little Rock.”
