Jason Da Luz, reportedly one of the original partners of Corner Tavern, has taken over the group's former West Midtown location. The West Midtown location closed about two weeks ago after originally opening in 2010.
The new eatery, "The Whelan," is slated to open for dinner tonight at 6pm. The restaurant gets its name from Da Luz's Irish mother whose maiden name was Whelan.
While Da Luz is South African, the eatery will not be an Irish or South African pub. Instead, expect an "upscale pub atmosphere with American favorites."
The Whelan is located on Huff Road at the Apex West Midtown apartments.
