A new bar and grill—Tavern on Castell—will be replacing The Downtowner Bar & Kitchen, which closed at the end of December.

Tavern on Castell will offer craft cocktails and upscale bar food, such as fish and chips, soups, salads, burgers, brisket tacos, and more.

The bar and grill is locally owned by Michelle Mathis-Lyons, Chip Lyons and Allison Wyatt.

Michelle noted that Tavern on Castell will also have a listening room equipped with couches and chairs for live acoustic music.

"We're so excited," she said.
