About the venue: The Dogwood is a "homegrown" concept with a small touch of southern hospitality.  Being from the south, as well as the Dogwood being our grandmother's favorite tree, we figured the iconic tree would be a perfect logo to showcase our "outdoor entertaining concept throughout the bar.  Natural stone and wood run throughout the spacious interior and brings you through floor to ceiling walk-throughs into gorgeous open air patios.  The overall concept brings you to that back-home feeling among family and friends.
