HUNTSVILLE – In the Year of the Dragon, a new culinary arrival at MidCity District can only hope the Chinese calendar for 2024 brings what is predicted as a time for authority, prosperity and good fortune.

According to MidCity, Dragon Alley is the latest venture from popular local culinary innovator HX Brand adding to the district’s vibrant array of new-to-market retail, dining and entertainment options.

Guests of the future Asian street food bar and restaurant can look forward to a diverse selection of eclectic Asian street food favorites, along with boldly flavored shareable plates, delicious drinks and a lively atmosphere.

Dragon Alley’s culinary team, led by chef Chao Fang, promises top-notch Asian cuisine. Beyond exceptional dining, Dragon Alley aims to transport customers to 1990s Hong Kong with its colorful ambiance, characterized by neon lights, colorful artwork, artisanal wooden tables and unique accent pieces. Outdoor dining and a stage for local performers will MidCity District has other unique concepts in development.

“The mission and heartbeat of MidCity is to discover, introduce and celebrate all of the creativity and talent our city has to offer,” said Max Grelier, co-founder of RCP Companies and developer of MidCity District. “In order for Huntsville to compete with larger markets for workforce, we need to elevate our food scene as well.
