Hef's Bar & Grill has traded up for bigger, snazzier digs.
After about three months of construction, Hef's – which according to Yelp, is popular for its wings and happy hour – is reopening its doors Saturday in a new space more than three times bigger than its last location, where it stood for about a decade.
The restaurant was previously situated in
in Myers Park,
across the street from the . Its new spot, a former O'Charley's at Park
Center 1920 Sardis Road,
is almost 5,500 square feet, owner Andy Tao said – a big upgrade from its
former space of about 1,500 square feet.
''We decided to go big when the lease was up,'' Tao said.
The new restaurant will feature about 27 televisions and a patio will be built in the spring, Tao said. Except for a few new Asian-inspired items, the menu will largely be unchanged.
David Tschirhart, a commercial broker at Legacy Real Estate Advisors, represents the landlord of the new building. He said the area is ripe for business growth since more people have moved in nearby.
''That area's seen a lot of apartment growth and people are there now versus 7 or 8 years ago,'' Tschirhart said.
