A new pub-style restaurant and bar is due to open next month on Water Street, owned and operated by the former owner of Blackstone Tap.

The 107 Tap, named after its address at 107 Water St., will have a laid-back vibe with a sports theme, pool table, darts, rear party room and music.

“We’re going to serve pub-style fare like burgers and then use it as a semi-incubator space for popup chefs,” said Jefferson Mararian, who owned the now-closed restaurant for 12 years before selling it.

Mararian said he bought the building, which once housed a nightclub, four months ago and decided to take advantage of the empty food court space in the ‘booming’ canal district, a short walk of Worcester Public Market. In preparation, he removed the back bar from the space and installed a brand new kitchen.

The restaurant will offer a wider menu than Mararian’s previous establishment, he said, and will be open from 3 p.m. for after-work and dinner parties.

“Over time, we might expand the menu or expand the hours, depending on the population,” he said.

As of Thursday, the facility is awaiting approval for an alcohol, communal victualling and entertainment license with the city’s Licensing Commission. Mararian said that based on license approval and completion of construction, he expects to open in June.

Around 500 people crowded into the Face bar in Reading on Saturday May 14 to show their support for the Ukraine disaster crisis appeal.

A 56-year-old drummer from Reading has spent the past few months organizing the event to raise money for Red Cross Relief.

Peter Laschok, whose father is from Ukraine, was inspired to raise funds after hearing the devastating news of the Russian invasion.

He said: “I was planning a trip to Ukraine with my brother and nephew to trace my father’s legacy.

“He was born in Ukraine and came to the UK as a refugee after being taken away during World War II, so that’s something close to my heart.

“I felt I had to do something to help the displaced people in Ukraine and Red Cross relief is doing a lot to help there.”

Four local bands performed at the event where all proceeds went to the charity. Groups included The Highwasters, The Skangsters, Deckchairs and The Scavengers.

A raffle and tombola also took place in the evening alongside the entertainment.

East Ridge will soon be home to a Twin Peaks Restaurant.

Construction is set to begin this week at the Jordan Crossing development near Camp Jordan on the new sports-themed restaurant known as Twin Peaks, a sports bar built with lodge decor that features wall-to-wall sporting events displayed on several television screens.

The Atlanta-based franchise developer for Twin Peaks — La Cima Restaurants LLC — plans to open the 350-seat restaurant and sports bar in January along Camp Jordan Road near Bass Pro Shops and Topgolf.

“We have always loved the growth and prospects for Chattanooga and have been searching for the right site for some time,” said James Porcello, Vice President of Operations and Partner of La Cima Restaurants, in an emailed statement regarding the new East Ridge location. .

Porcello said the 10,700 square foot lodge is expected to open with around 125 staff and will be the 16th Twin Peaks location for his business.

The new restaurant will be the third Twin Peaks in Tennessee and among more than 90 “lodges” the Texas-based restaurant or its franchisees have opened since its debut in 2005. One of the hottest sports-themed restaurant chains in the country, Twin Peaks is touted as the “ultimate sports venue” and “man cave”.

The company said it offers homemade food and a variety of beers and drinks.

Crossing Jordan

The 50-acre development on Exit 1 at East Ridge includes restaurants, entertainment, shopping and a hotel at the entrance to Camp Jordan.

— Bass Pro Shops opened in 2016.

— The Hampton Inn hotel opened in 2018.

— Topgolf opened in 2020.

– Open restaurants include Chick Fil A, Jonathan’s Grille, Buddy’s BBQ, Dos Bros Fresh Mexican, Dairy Queen, Starbucks and later this week Pizza Bros. Twin Peaks is scheduled to open in January.

Restaurants are generally themed around a wilderness lodge and serve a mix of American, Southwestern, and Southern cuisines, as well as alcohol. The chain’s slogan is “Eats. Drinks. Scenic Views.”

A Twin Peaks opened in Brentwood, Tennessee ten years ago and the chain expanded to Knoxville about six years ago. Twin Peaks, which was acquired last year by Fat Brands for $300 million, is now expanding aggressively in the United States and Mexico.

“We look forward to building on their strong development pipeline to bring the iconic Twin Peaks experience to even more customers around the world,” Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of Fat Brands, said in a statement after purchasing the chain.

The restaurant’s theme is similar to that of Hooters, which operates a local restaurant on Brainerd Road. Similar chains include Redneck Heaven, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, Bombshells, Bone Daddy’s, Ojos Locos, Chula’s, Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill, Big Racks, Show-Me’s, Mugs & Jugs and WingHouse Bar & Grill.

Twin Peaks is the latest addition to the growing Jordan Crossing development in East Ridge which is anchored by the Bass Pro Shops which opened in 2016. With the opening this week of Pizza Bros, the 50-acre development already includes a half -dozen restaurants serving a variety of tastes.

“This will likely be our last full-service restaurant, and we plan to make other major announcements this summer,” said John Healy, a partner at Wolftever Development LLC, which developed Jordan Crossing. “We just think with the traffic we have in this area and the success of our existing tenants, it’s a great addition. We only have 6 acres left and when built, Jordan Crossing will eventually eclipse 100 million investment dollars.”

Healy said the prime location along Interstate 75 and the Tennessee entrance attracts local residents from throughout the Chattanooga area as well as many of the millions of motorists who travel along the un of the busiest north-south interstate corridors.

“It succeeded for the same reason it attracted the most hotel rooms of any I-75 exit 40 years ago,” Healy said. “It’s a great location and easy to get to anywhere in Chattanooga.”

Township Fort Lauderdale – the half-German, half-pub neighborhood pub where tribes of sports fans have come for camaraderie, craft beer and Super Bowl parties – abruptly closed on May 12 after four years in the center -city.

Tim Petrillo, co-founder of The Restaurant People (S3, YOLO, Java & Jam), wasted little time or fanfare in closing Township’s doors: He shut down the bar and deleted Township’s website and social accounts a few hours after selling the lease to Tin Roof, a Nashville-based barbecue and live music chain slated to reopen in that space later this fall.

“We made money with it. It was a good deal for us,” Petrillo told the South Florida Sun Sentinel Friday morning, though he declined to disclose the purchase price. “We are not sad to have closed this store. They offered us a good number, and it was good for both parties.

The sports pub at 219 S. Andrews Ave. in the historic McCrory Building has taken an enviable place downtown: adjacent to the Fort Lauderdale Wharf, Las Olas Boulevard and a host of new residential towers. When it debuted in 2018, Township’s menu relied on German-style bratwursts and pretzels, but also served burgers and fish sandwiches that evoked the comfort food fare of Petrillo’s bygone restaurant, Tarpon Bend.

The bar also served as a college football center, especially for Florida State Seminole sidekicks, Petrillo says. But as college crowds left downtown and young professionals headed for nearby high-rises, the neighborhood’s character gentrified and foot traffic dried up, says Petrillo.

“It’s hard to run a college business in a more upscale downtown area,” says Petrillo, who has owned the building with real estate investor Steven Halmos since 1998. “It’s great to be a sports bar, but it’s also a curse It’s very busy for football and basketball, but during baseball season, low season, there wasn’t as much intensity to go.

Over the next few months, the 6,800 square foot space will be outfitted with a high-end music stage, says Bob Franklin, partner and CEO of Tin Roof. The walls will be redecorated with multicolored reclaimed wood and aluminum siding. The new Tin Roof Fort Lauderdale will employ 50 to 70 full-time staff, including a stable of sound engineers to wire up the music stage for nighttime gigs. This will be Florida’s third Tin Roof bar after opening in Orlando in 2015 and on Delray Beach’s bustling Atlantic Avenue in 2019.

“We have a great location and excellent visibility,” Franklin says of the venue, which seats 220 people inside and on its terrace overlooking Andrews Avenue. “I think Fort Lauderdale has grown a bit, and now there are high-end stores and professionals looking for cool entertainment experiences when they go out. It ticked all of our boxes.

The addition of Tin Roof Fort Lauderdale is a boon to local and national rock and country bands already playing at the venue’s other metro locations in Detroit, New Orleans, San Diego, Baltimore and Memphis, Franklin said.

“We give them one more place to plug into as they browse our Tin Roof network across the country,” he says. “There is always a demand for emerging artists, and that keeps us going.”

Tin Roof’s Nashville-inspired menu will be “nearly identical” to Tin Roof Delray Beach’s, Franklin says. Dishes include hot Nashville chicken, fried pickles, BBQ pulled pork quesadillas, burgers, mac and cheese, and an a la carte taco suite. Their bar offers craft cocktails, draft beers, wines and Red Bull infused drinks.

Tin Roof Fort Lauderdale, at 219 S. Andrews Ave., is set to debut later this fall. Go to TinRoofBars.com.

The iconic show miami vice was filmed in a Miami bar that is not only still open today, but also has unique decorations from when the show was filmed.

Mac’s Club Deuce, located at 222 14th St., Miami Beach, FL 33139, is considered the oldest bar in town in Florida, so of course I stopped in to see the historic entertainment building in town.

It’s basically the stereotype of the diving scene. There’s a pool table, people can smoke cigarettes inside, and it’s lined with these bright neon lights…but before you judge, these lights have become a movie staple.

Neon lights added to set up for ‘Miami Vice’ to film.Jenna Kelley | Narcity

The bartender told me that the interior decor was originally put up for the show and they never took it down, adding to its rich Magic City history.

That’s not where it stops either. Anthony Bourdain stopped at the smoky dive and recorded a Anthony Bourdain: part unknown episode aired in December 2014.

It was established in 1926, but owner Mac Klein took over in 1946, naming the bar after himself.

If you’re looking for affordability in a fairly expensive city center, this dive bar has relatively inexpensive drinks.

The bar is open daily and offers a happy hour from 8am to 5pm which the property considers “legendary”.

Being the old school place that it is, it only accepts cash. The vintage essentials really make a splash when you walk in and see the Budweiser lamp lighting up the pool table.

An Ayrshire bar boss has told how he used Covid lockdowns as inspiration to become the best in the business.

David Storrie bought his new business just three months before the world was thrown into chaos with the first virus outbreak.

And much of his next two years was spent desperately trying to put his long-held plans into action.

Now it’s riding the crest of a wave after The Smoking Goat, the cozy venue with a big reputation in Ayr’s Academy Street, was crowned Scotland’s best independent bar.



Another packed house at The Goat

David, 38, revealed: “Our biggest selling point is that we bring a Glasgow and Edinburgh vibe to Ayr and I think that played a big part in the price tag.

“It’s a huge honor and blew us away to win – thousands of venues across Scotland are competing and even making the final list of finalists was a feat in itself.

“The past two years have been tough for obvious reasons…so getting this recognition is worth it.”

David bought The Goat in December 2019 before the onslaught of Covid made him fear the worst.

He said: “I had made a business decision and having made it with my own hands was so frustrating.

“At times during the shutdowns, it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

“But in a weird way, I used it as a positive element and tried to transform the place as much as possible.

“We built a beer garden and added so many other touches to the business that we were ready to come back bigger and better when we reopened.”

The Goat, which employs just under 20 people, is now one of the hippest venues south of town and even Tuesday night quizzes are standing room only.

Victory at the Scottish Entertainment Awards – where they were also nominated for Best Burger and Best Pub – is now the icing on the cake.

David added: “We try to offer something for everyone, whether it’s quiz nights, our live sports, acoustic nights or DJ sessions.

“The staff have been amazing and that’s for them. We’ve all worked so hard to get here and now we want to enjoy this moment.”
