August has been a great month for small businesses in downtown Raleigh.
108 & 108 1/2 E. Hargett St., formerly occupied by Two T's and Blue Bar respectively, will soon be home to a "Hawaiian cafe" and a British pub. The owners of the Hawaiian cafe have asked me to keep their concept under wraps until they're ready to open.
The one thing I can tell you is that the space has been given a serious facelift and has one of the most important aspects of any successful bar/restaurant; outdoor seating.
Both concepts should be fully operational by October. Then again, you know how that goes.
Stay tuned to Tyler's Tap for opening info.
