Many of us have been waiting with eager anticipation bordering on impatience for the Anaheim Packing District to open its doors, and a date has finally been set: Saturday, May 31:

anaheim packing house grand opening


It looks like it will house some very cool venues, such as The Blind Rabbit Speakeasy. According to this Facebook post, “The Blind Rabbit Speakeasy will serve up some swell specialty cocktails behind this wall inside the Anaheim Packing House“:

According to the Orange County Register:

An eclectic mix of eateries and artisans, the Packing House has leased 23 of the 24 spots inside the converted historic building near Anaheim Boulevard and Broadway, said Chris Bennett, director of development for LAB Holdings, last week. Some venues could hold “soft openings” as early as next month.

The opening comes about seven months after it was initially expected.

Some delays were related to food venues getting their health permits, a process that took longer than anticipated.

Well, better late than never. I, for one, am looking forward to a great addition to north-central OC’s night life and wish this venture every success.
