Celebrity-Backed Tavern to Open in Downtown Alpharetta in February
ALPHARETTA, GA. — Five Guys Taverns LLC has signed a lease to open Taffer’s Tavern at 33 S. Main St. in historic downtown Alpharetta in February 2020. The location will be the first in the nation for Taffer’s Tavern, which is backed by TV star Jon Taffer. Taffer is the host of “Bar Rescue.” The restaurant will be situated in the Liberty Hall building, directly across the street from City Hall. The building will feature the original bar, which was built in the 1700s and imported from England. Taffer’s Tavern will offer a menu that features a vacuum-sealed cooking method that doesn’t use traditional, commercial equipment. Locally based firm Chandlee and Sons Construction will serve as the general contractor. Five Guys Taverns plans to open four more restaurants across the state. The company has teamed with Fransmart, which also partners with companies such as Qdoba Mexican Grill and Five Guys, as its franchise development partner.
