Ziggy’s to reopen in a large outdoor space in High Point | Local News

After two years of wanting to reopen Ziggy’s on the southeast coast, owner Jay Stephens chose High Point as the location for his performance hall and bar.

Ziggy’s will open April 1 at 1547 West English Road in an outdoor location that is part of the Cohab Space campus owned by John Muldoon. On its website, Cohab states that it “aims to spark change by serving as a hub for creativity, craftsmanship, and leadership.”

Stephens leases a total of 45,000 square feet in Muldoon. In addition to its 1,500-seat outdoor venue, Stephens will open Space, a nightclub and craft cocktail bar, which will seat 150 people.

“It’s basically a courtyard,” Stephens said of the outdoor space. “We have a real big stage.”

He develops the space for private parties.

Ziggy’s began as the White Horse Pub on Deacon Boulevard in Winston-Salem in the 1970s. After the venue changed to the Ziggy’s name and was on Baity Street in Winston-Salem, Stephens purchased Ziggy’s in 1989 from its principal owner, Scott Yingling. But the place closed in December 2007.

Then Ziggy’s operated from 2011 to 2016 at 9th and Trade streets, which is the current location of the Ramkat.
