Crescent Roots Hospitality—formed in February, according to the Georgia Secretary of State—has purchased the concept and will reopen something similar with a different name in its place.

One of the company’s organizers is Rene (Randy) Pechin, the general manager at Opera Night Club since 2013.

The space, at 299 North Highland Avenue NE, has since had its windows covered from floor-to-ceiling with paper, according to a tip from a What Now Atlanta (WNA) reader.

A spokesperson confirmed the closure Tuesday in an email to WNA.

“Brian Lewis, who co-founded Amer with the late David Durnell, will focus on his other Atlanta-area projects, including Bocado restaurant and bar on the Westside, Bocado Burger at Avalon, Al Forno’s pizza joint in Midtown, and Victtoria Wholesale Bakery, which provides bread and pizza to hotels, restaurants, and other businesses around Atlanta,” the company spokesperson said.

Monday was the concept’s last day.

Crescent will soon begin renovation’s to the space and “should be complete within a month,” according to Eater.
