New Face in Town: Regent Street
egent Street, on the backside of the new Eccles Theater and 111 Main, serves many purposes. This reimagined thoroughfare is the entrance to the Black Box theater, where small arts groups perform, and provides access to parking structures for theatergoers. That’s the functional part. Regent is also utilitarian in connecting City Creek Center and Gallivan Center, as well as being thoughtfully designed to host sidewalk performances and street events on its own. Add to that a wide array of restaurants, painted murals and mid-block access to Main Street, and it’s easy to see the planners and designers thought of it all! We asked our staff what their
favorite thing about Regent Street is. Here’s what they said: Greg Yerkes: The ability to
close the curbless street for festivals and street parties.
Ryan Mack: Pretty Bird! Who doesn’t love Nashville Hot Chicken? Get your fix right here on Regent, created by celeb chef Viet Pham. Kristin Beck: It’s potential as
a public space that is creatively utilized and executed well. Looking forward to a creative and social space!
Nancy Le: The new Regent
Hotel, a boutique hotel planned for the 200 South corner.
