Event Style: Tapas & Drinks
Opened in 1948 by Fred “Rabbit” Simpson, Rabbit’s Motel was a crown jewel of Black-owned Tourist Courts for African-American travelers in the segregation-era South, and provided lodging and soul-food dining for many Black travelers. Rabbit’s Motel sat in the heart of Southside, a flourishing African-American community that was one of many early-Asheville vibrant Black communities in Asheville. SoundSpace@Rabbit’s, opened in 2020, will create a creative arts hub in Asheville including music rehearsal studio space, soul food kitchen and artist studios, and will promote historic pride while embracing a model of diversity in the most authentic way possible, through music, art, community, and food. Join us for a lively event featuring music, drinks and bites inspired by the original Rabbit’s Motel and Cafe.
