Not Your Average Bar

At Loading Dock, we believe quality work is done best in the context of a diverse and supportive community.  Dock 1053 is full of entrepreneurs, forward thinkers, innovators and change-makers that we know and love. We think that you should know them too, which is why we're excited to share our Meet Our Neighbors blog series! Something special is happening on 1053 East Whitaker Mill Road. Come take a virtual stroll with us around The Dock and find out what makes this place so unique. 

This is not your average bar.  In fact, it's not a bar at all.  Meet Our Neighbors Cotton Bar!  Walk into this welcoming space and you'll never want to leave. That was the goal Reid Fogleman had in mind when he was deciding on a name for his branding and logo business.  Cotton Bar strives to connect people and communities through the stories that they infuse into their clothing. 

We wanted to create a place where people would want to gather and come, and hang out and have a drink. But also buy product. We thought it was a cool name that stuck and created a story and a conversation piece.

Are you a creative craftsman that has an idea and logo that you want to bring to market?  Maybe you don't have the marketing, funding, or the network.  This is where Cotton Bar wants to collaborate!  Cotton Bar not only sells their own product, they want to become the launching pad for yours too.  Reid and his team believe that through collaboration and good conversation, they can create something really special. 

We chose Dock 1053 because of the history of the building and the personality of the tenants, and we think our company can thrive here.
— Reid Fogleman, CEO of Cotton Bar
