This year, Fins fans will have a new home for cold beers, hot wings and en masse commiserating: Duffy’s Sports Grill is taking up residence in Coconut Grove’s CocoWalk.
According to the folks at CocoWalk, the casual, Florida-based chain is moving into the old Tu Tu Tango space this fall.
While the outdoor shopping area has had quite a few closures over the years (Hooter’,s Crazy Piano’s, Tu Tu Tango, etc.) — the addition of the ever-popular Paragon Grove 13 and other new arrivals has given them a real resurgence as of late. Stop by on any given evening and it’s all abuzz.
The folks at CocoWalk say they’re stoked to welcome Duffy’s. “I know that we’re all excited!” said CocoWalk’s marketing director, M. Peggy Quattro.
“Both parties really wanted to make it happen. Duffy’s Sports Grill really wanted to be here and we really wanted them. We thought this would be a great addition to CocoWalk and for the Grove,” Quattro said. “It’s going to appeal to the younger locals and visitors and to the older crowd as well.”
The sports grill has multiple locations — mostly in Broward and Palm Beach counties — and they’re known for their massive menu, awesome 2-for-1 drink specials and sports memorabilia on display. Plus, they’ve got lots of promos and goodies for frequent diners via their MVP card program.
While they don’t have an official opening date as of yet, it’ll be in the fall, according to Quattro. First up, they’ll be doing a few renovations.
Personally, we’re thrilled about a new option for beer-guzzling, sports-crazed Groveites. Stay tuned for more news!
