THE RETREAT TAPAS BAR RE-OPENS

Just prior to Masters Week,  The Retreat Tapas Bar re-opened on Washington Road in Evans across from Walmart. It had been closed since just after Thanksgiving — about four months.

In the summer of 2012, an SRS employee and a longtime friend with hospitality experience opened The Retreat Tapas Bar and a Cigar Bar next door.

There were challenges from the beginning as they opened without a liquor license, were closed by the health department for several days for an infraction, and they went through a few executive chefs.

The buzz is the last executive chef and the restaurant manager are sub-leasing the restaurant side from the previous owner (SRS employee). They too have had several missteps — promising to open around the 1st of the year and subsequent months.

They have closed the cigar bar side of the business and are considering a restaurant expansion should sales increase.

The re-opened Retreat Tapas Bar is open from 5pm Tuesdays through Saturdays.
