Update: The new Duckworth’s Ballantyne location opened on Nov. 1. Enjoy!
Duckworth’s Grill and Taphouse will open its third location in Ballantyne this fall, moving into the building that previously held Buffalo’s Southwest Cafe. Rob Duckworth said the Ballantyne Duckworth’s should open in October, with construction beginning in the next couple of weeks.
At 6,500 square feet, the Ballantyne Duckworth’s will be around 2,300 square feet larger than the Park Rd. location. The new location should feature 80 taps plus a beer engine for cask ales. The Park Rd. location is well known for its Tuesday and Thursday draft specials, and the Ballantyne Duckworth’s will offer similar specials on Mondays and Wednesdays. This way, Duckworth’s can offer specials four days out of the week.
Like the Park Rd. taphouse, the Ballantyne Duckworth’s will feature many unique and often rare beers, but Rob Duckworth noted they would try to keep the taplists different so as to offer plenty of variety between the locations while always keeping “the staples” available.
The food menu will be identical to that of the Park Rd. Duckworth’s. The overall layout will also be similar, but the new location will have more TVs, more seats and a covered patio with heaters for the cold weather.
