Another restaurant group plans to set up camp along Phoenix's bustling Seventh Street stretch.

Glass Half Full, LLC., the Chicago-based restaurant group that bought and renovated Old Town Gringos in Scottsdale, will launch its newest concept in Phoenix later this spring.

"Camp Social" is a themed bar and restaurant that is loosely based on outdoor camping and summer camp, general manager Anthony Georgoulis told ABC15.

The project is currently under construction along 7th Street north of Bethany Home Road. It is located next door to Joe's Midnight Run.

Georgoulis said Camp Social will offer guests a fun and relaxed environment and high-quality food at affordable prices.

The restaurant has two bars, one inside and one that connects to the patio, a renovated camper-turned-hostess stand, and a backroom that will have games and a fireplace. Two large garage doors at the front of the building will open during Arizona's cooler months while sliding doors open to the patio.

A decorated cabin overlooks the bathrooms and a tire swing will hang from the main bar.

While the menu is still being finalized, Georgoulis said it will feature typical American fare potentially including personal pizzas, wood-fired items and, of course, some sort of s'mores dessert.

Right now, Camp Social is slated to open sometime in May.

Glass Half Full, LLC is owned by Jim Neumann, according to the Arizona Corporation Commission. The group opened The Rabbit Hole, a self-claimed Alice In Wonderland-themed concept in Chicago.
