The closure of Mellow Mushroom in St. Matthews was sudden. But the building won’t sit empty for long.
Jared Matthews, with Diamonds Pub & Billards, confirmed he and his business partners have taken ownership of the former pizza joint.
Matthews says they’re going to make it into a street food and hops beer concept, with live music. The new restaurant, which does not yet have a name, will focus on the lunch rush and early dinner.
He says the inside will stay mostly the same but there will be changes to the outside of the building.
The new business has secured some parking nearby to help customers.
They’re looking to open sometime this summer.
