Downtown cupcake and wine shop opening this month

A Downtown bakery and wine bar that’s been in the works for a few years now is at last about to open.

The Corked Carrot at 314 S. Main is having its grand opening April 27.

A building permit was filed for first-floor interior renovation work in October. Plans originally submitted to one of the affiliate boards of the Downtown Memphis Commission showed touches like a basement that would be available to host private events. The owner said he envisioned the business becoming sought out “for getting cupcakes after work to bring home to the family, getting a glass of wine expertly paired with a cupcake, planning a surprise celebration in our private area or getting an event catered with our sophisticated and decadent cupcakes.”
