The Franklin Street building where Fitzgerald’s used to be is getting a new resident — Might as Well Bar and Grill.
The move was confirmed by William Jones, one of the partners behind Might as Well. Jones said there’s currently no timeline for the restaurant’s opening.
“We’ve actually had the location for a while now,” Jones said. “We’ve just been waiting for permits and stuff to begin construction.”
Might as Well, which opened in Wilmington, N.C. in 2012, is a college-town neighborhood sports bar, according to Jones. This new location in Chapel Hill will be the restaurant’s second, Jones said.
The Wilmington location features daily drink specials, American-style food, 24 beers on tap and delivery every weekend until 2 a.m.
