LIBERTY STATION TO WELCOME NEW MULTI-USE LIFESTYLE CONCEPT BY MONIKER GROUP SET TO OPEN IN FEBRUARY 2016
“Moniker General” Will Transform Historic Naval Building Into Open Concept Retail Store, Beer Tasting Taproom & Coffee Bar
San Diego-based multifaceted design and real estate company, Moniker Group, has acquired the lease on their newest endeavor—a formerly uninhabited historic building in Liberty Station’s flourishing north end Arts District. Located directly across from Stone Brewing Co. at 2860 Sims Rd., Moniker General will serve as a space for community and commerce, blending a modular retail store, coffee bar and beer tasting taproom in one.
Moniker Group first made their mark on San Diego’s real estate landscape with the launch of Moniker Warehouse, a multipurpose arts and business center in downtown’s East Village neighborhood. The warehouse, which opened in 2005, serves the community as an outpost for non-profits, start-ups, artists and entrepreneurs, as well as a home for Moniker’s design and fabrication brands, ‘Moniker Design’ and ‘Moniker Made.’
Moniker General’s retail component will feature a curated selection of high-quality goods from a variety of local businesses including Lone Flag, Bradley Mountain and Moniker Made, alongside a selection of national brands that San Diegans have come to love. The concept’s coffee bar will be operated by Moniker Coffee, which will pour a variety of small-batch local producers as well as hard to find specialty roasters from outside of San Diego. In partnership with 32 North Brewing Company out of Miramar, Moniker General will create a unique taproom highlighting the specialty brewery’s favorite small batch creations and seasonal selections.
The announcement of Moniker General at Liberty Station comes during a period of monumental growth and development for the Point Loma neighborhood. A burgeoning hub for San Diego’s most promising hospitality collectives, Liberty Station’s north end ‘Arts District’ will also be home to the highly-anticipated new class of concepts in early 2016 including: Liberty Public Market, Fireside by The Patio Group, Buona Forchetta, The LOT, Kid Ventures, as well as recently announced Breakfast Republic.
“We couldn’t be more excited about expanding our roots into Liberty Station,” says Ryan Sisson, CEO of Moniker Group. “There’s so much growth taking shape within the community here, and we’re looking forward to sharing our creative vision while contributing a place for people to come together and socialize.”
Moniker Group will spearhead the design, build and fabrication of their new collective concept in-house. The build out will feature a 4,200 sq. ft. open-concept interior layout and a 1,200 sq. ft. outdoor patio. Moniker General is slated to open doors at 2860 Sims Rd. in February of 2016.
