Country superstar’s popular chain to break ground in July at The Savannah Mall
(SAVANNAH, GA) The Savannah Mall has signed a lease agreement with Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill, paving the way for the popular restaurant and bar to open in early 2014. Construction on the space is set to begin in July.
The chain, inspired by country superstar Toby Keith’s 2003 hit single “I Love This Bar,” currently operates 13 restaurants in 11 states, with more set to open soon. The Savannah Mall restaurant will be the first Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill in Georgia. The bar and grill features Whiskey Girl servers, a menu filled with classic Southern dishes, a guitar-shaped bar, live music and a gift shop with Toby Keith memorabilia.
Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill will occupy approximately 15,000 square feet of space on the second level of the Savannah Mall at the entrance between Target and Bass Pro Shop. The eatery will take up six storefronts and will include outdoor seating; stores affected by the construction will be relocated to another section of the mall.
“We’re ecstatic to bring Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill to Savannah,” said Frank Capri, CEO and president of Boomtown Entertainment, owner-operators of Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill. “Savannah is full of country music fans, and in our strategic roll-out in the Southeast, this is a great way to enter the Georgia market.”
