Tyler's Taproom, a Triangle restaurant with an extensive beer selection
brewpub with locations in Carrboro, Apex and Durham, is expanding into downtown Raleigh.
Construction has started in the 10,500-square-foot space in Seaboard Station that occupied Tookie's Grill and was originally intended for Red's Beach Music Club. Originally, Tyler's was only going to occupy the Red's space but when Tookie's closed, the owner decided to take that space as well, which already included a kitchen.
Ted Van Dyk of New City Design Group said they hope to be open by September or October. He added that the space will include a 50-feet outdoor deck with an outdoor bar offering a view of downtown Raleigh.
In a press release, owner Tyler Huntington said, "We are excited about finally making our Raleigh location a reality. It took a while to get all of the pieces together, but the wait has been worth it. In the end we will have more space, room for private events, and a great patio area."
