Ownership change in the works for South on Main; Oxford American 2020 concerts remain there at present

Today it was announced that South on Main owners/operators Chef Matthew and Amy Bell will be relocating outside of Arkansas and will be transitioning restaurant/venue operations to new proprietors after the first week of February 2020.

The Oxford American put out a statement that it is grateful for their generosity of culinary talent, commitment, and investment in the creation of South on Main. They’ve made South on Main a special place for so many people in our community. For seven years they have been enthusiastic partners of the Oxford American in the shared pursuit of enhancing our region’s cultural landscape. We thank them and wish them the very best.
