The complete vision owner Josh Blair had in mind for 24 Taps Burgers & Brews wasn't ready in time for football season last fall, but they opened anyway, keeping the bigger picture in mind through several months serving basic stadium grub in a sparse space.
After what Blair calls a "complete and total remodel," 24 Taps relaunched during March Madness as a fully operational sports bar and dining spot, serving up "gourmet, fresh, hand-pressed burgers" made in-house, along with homemade appetizers and fresh salads.
"We wanted to do it from the beginning, but we didn't have enough time to develop it physically and in our brains," Blair said. "And we do everything local, from our food vendors to our beer."
The "new" version includes the Empire Club, a private room available for banquets and business meetings, as well as a game area with a shuffleboard table and a Big Lebowski mural that really ties the room together.
