Hamburger Mary’s Bar & Grille is scheduled to open in mid-July at the former Blind Rabbit in Riverside.
Owner Gary Motes opened Hamburger Mary’s Bar & Grille nearly five years ago at 3333 Beach Blvd. after visiting the Tampa location.
“I fell in love with it and felt like Jacksonville needed it,” he said. “We took a chance and Jacksonville has embraced it.”
The Blind Rabbit closed earlier last month following a five-year run at 901 King St.
Hamburger Mary’s in Riverside will have its signature hamburgers — and late-night drag shows on Friday and Saturday and a brunch show every Saturday and Sunday.
Motes said Hamburger Mary’s Bar & Grille will be open at 11 a.m. for lunch service and close at midnight during the week and by 4 a.m. on weekends.
He anticipates opening the Riverside location in mid-July.
