ROXX Tavern gone, but Hudson Grille coming soon.
After (temporarily) closing about a week ago with the promise of renovations and improvements, ROXX Tavern Tucker will not be reopening. In place of ROXX, Hudson Grille will open. Hudson Grille is a bar & grill concept from Atlanta-based Metrotainment Cafes.
According to an email sent to fans of ROXX Tavern, owner Dean Chronopoulos formed a "partnership" with Hudson Grille in "rebranding" the Tucker restaurant. The "rebranding does not come as an easy choice, but as a business and personal decision, I think it is the best option."
Chronopoulos goes on to say "You will continue to see me at the Hudson Grille Tucker location and I will make sure your food and service are the best."
Chronopoulos states in his message that the plan is to have Hudson Grille Tucker open the first week of December. According to a rep at Hudson Grille, the Tucker location is reportedly on track to open mid-to-late December. According to the same rep, the restaurant was "sold" [to Metrotainment Cafes.]
In case you missed it, ROXX Tavern opened in late May and closed Sunday, November 9th.
The restaurant, located at 2075 Northlake Parkway, was originally a Chili's and later a Twisted Taco restaurant.
There are currently five other Hudson Grille locations in metro Atlanta in Alpharetta, Brookhaven, Midtown, Downtown and Sandy Springs.
Hudson Grille is also planning a new location in Kennesaw on Cobb Place Lane which is currently slated to open early next year. The Kennesaw Hudson Grille will replace Bailey's Pub & Grille, a similar eatery.
