will reopen its doors to the Silver Spring community two months after being remodeled by Spike TV’s Jon Taffer into the Corporate Bar & Grill.
Piratz Tavern owner Tracy Rebelo tells Patch that the theme just wasn't working.
"Piratz is back [and] we were a Corporate Bar & Grill all but one day and it definitely was not working," said Rebelo.
It started with taking down the Corporate Bar & Grill’s sign and burning it. During the video the narrator sings:
We are old buccaneers, pirates and privateers in this Corporate Bar & Grill. You said you’d rescue us, you disrespected us, and our dreams you tried to kill. I never watched your show, I had no way to know, what a bastard you could be. Unbridled arrogance with nothing in your pants; perfect for reality TV.
With over 300 views on YouTube, a few of the viewers wrote that they were excited about the return of the pirate-themed bar and restaurant. One viewer suggested that the owners pay attention to complaints so they wouldn't lose money.
The pirate-themed restaurant is set to reopen Thursday, April 5 at 4 p.m. with a happy hour. Customers can expect a renovated tavern with a slightly different menu.
The happy hour special from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. will include half-price drinks, signature cocktails, and margaritas.
