The Paradise Valley Marketplace is an attractive community center in a densely populated area with an average household income exceeding $91,000 within a three-mile radius. Anchored by Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe's, this center features an excellent mix of retailers, retail services and restaurants, making it an ideal location for a new dining concept.

"Turning an unused garden space into a dynamic patio that caters to both diners and their four-legged friends gives our customers another great reason to visit Paradise Valley Marketplace and we are excited to welcome O.S.H.O. to our center."
O.H.S.O. Tap & Take will be located across from Trader Joe's and will occupy 3,615 square feet of interior space with an immediately adjacent outdoor seating area. It is expected to open later this year. This will be O.H.S.O. Eatery + nanoBrewery's third location.
