The lounge was located at 2031 Central Plaza, Ste. 101, in Freiheit Village across the street from Double Schott’s.
“We know that that location can be profitable because we’re across the street from it,” Hanna said. “We know people out there want something else they can go and enjoy, and get good service and something different than Double Schott’s.”
Hanna opened the sports bar in 2018 after starting HMS Hospitality Group, LLC in 2017, and has plans to open more restaurants and bars in the area.
“I created our company back in 2017, with the goal in mind to have more than one concept, but then also more than one location per concept,” Hanna said. “The feel we’re looking for [at the new location] is just going to be a nice relaxed atmosphere.”
In addition to a rooftop bar, the ground floor will also be a bistro with small plates and cocktails, Hanna said, and menu prices will be comparable to or slightly above prices at Double Schott’s.
“We’re not out to hit the wallets of our clients, we’re out to create an environment that they feel comfortable in,” Hanna said.
The company is hiring staff to be trained to work at Double Schott’s or the new location, and Hanna is hopeful that the business will open early this fall after the team obtains the necessary permits and the new furniture arrives.
