A Bailey's restaurant will be part of the new Nebraskaland National Bank when it opens in November, bank president and CEO Mike Jacobson announced Wednesday.

The restaurant will be named “Bailey’s” in honor of Edd H. Bailey, former President of the Union Pacific Railroad and the namesake for Bailey Yards.

“Bailey yards and those who work there, continue to play a significant role in the economic vitality of North Platte and the surrounding region," Jacobson said. "We felt that it was fitting to honor them through the naming of this unique new restaurant.”

Bailey Yards covers 2,850 acres, is more than 8 miles in length and 2 miles wide. The yard has 200 separate tracks totaling 315 miles, with 985 switches, 766 turnouts and 17 receiving and 16 departure tracks. Union Pacific employs more than 2600 people in North Platte, most of whom are responsible for day-to-day operations of Bailey Yards. An average of 139 trains and more than 14,000 railroad cars pass through Bailey Yard every day, and the yard sorts approximately 3,000 cars daily using the yard’s two humps.

The restaurant space will be leased to Bailey’s American Cuisine, LLC. The restaurant will be on the south end of the new building, which stands between the one way streets of Jeffers and Dewey.

The restaurant owners also operate SoZo’s American Cuisine inside the Holiday Inn Hotel in Kearney. Although the facilities will operate independently, the menus will be similar.

The kitchen and baking facilities will be located in the basement of the bank. A first-floor restaurant will offer casual dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, as well as a “Barista’s” coffee shop with a drive-up window on the west side of the building.

The restaurant will also operate on the third-floor, opening for lunch and dinner by reservation, and feature high-end dining with a great view. The top floor will offer a full bar service where the guests will also have access to the patio.

A private meeting room will be available along with a space suitable for Christmas parties and other special events.

Bailey’s will also offer catering services.

“From the beginning, we were interested in bringing back to this area a great place to meet for breakfast and lunch, while also offering a unique higher end evening dining experience," Jacobson said. "We believe that Bailey’s will do just that.”

The restaurant is scheduled to open on or about Nov. 1 at the same time the bank building is scheduled to be completed.
