Hideaways replaces Tavern on Key
It's been a hectic three weeks for Dave Benton.
Benton is one of the new owners of Hideaways, which replaced the Tavern on Key (1400 Key Highway) less than a month ago. As soon as Benton and his business partner took over the space, they set about fixing it up, he said.
"We've made a ton of changes," he said. "Just cleaning the place up and painting was a challenge. When you come in here, it looks completely diff than it did before."
Hideaways has its grand opening tonight ...
They're going to serve hors d'oeurves from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., the Budweiser girls will be around from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and drink specials will be available all night. According to a bartender named Jen, the beer prices are as follows: $1.75 domestics, $3 imports and $3.50 microbrews.
Benton said they're working on getting the kitchen up and running and have hired two chefs. Neither Benton or his partner have worked in the bar business before, but there's a first for everything.
"We've been looking to do it for a long time," he said. "This was the right opportunity at the right time."
Thanks to Evan for the tip.
