Freedom Street Social stands as Arvada’s newest watering hole. We are thrilled to provide a communal space for those in the community to reside together immersed in cuisine, conversation, and company. The inspiration behind Freedom Street Social comes from the nostalgia of family gatherings that go beyond direct relatives. The concept was created by Nick and Amie Costanzo and has ties back to Nick’s Ohio roots and grandmother’s Italian cooking. The community at Freedom Street opens its doors to friends, neighbors and those falling somewhere in between. We know that our Arvada neighbors have longed for a connecting link and Freedom Street is the ‘third place’ to provide that.
While there aren’t grandma’s cooking in the kitchen per se, that same wholesome feeling is met by the vendors and atmosphere it houses. Eight food vendors occupy the space and offer unique flavors and menu items. The days start with coffee, pastries and burritos from Pressed Coffee and Vinyl at 7am daily. Fri-Sun we offer Brunch served up 8am-2pm by CHOPPED Winner Oscar Padilla with him Argentinian concept Gaucho Parrilla. The spice of hot chicken and comes from Lea Jane’s crew which burgers and fries come out of Johnny Be Good Burger. Windy City decadence defines Giordano’s deep dish pizza. The local renowned restaurant group – Culinary Creative – brings the trifecta of Mr. Oso and Señor Bear to Arvada with Osito — an ode to Latin Cuisine. Some days call for the brightness of Balance Grill with their Pan-Asian bowls, tacos and snacks. An afternoon pick me up can come from the frozen treats courtesy of Jeremiah’s Italian Ice . The endless option stretch beyond just a meal, instead it’s a meeting ground for co-working, after-school activities, holiday get-togethers, and happy hour hangouts.
