Schoolyard Tavern’s not reopening; space for lease

Schoolyard Tavern closed in October, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but some glimmer of light on Twitter appeared throughout the past year making us hopeful for a return.

This past week, Schoolyard Tavern’s space hit the market for lease, so it’s official that it is not coming back. Schoolyard joins other Southport favorites that are no longer here, including Southport Lanes, Mystic Celt, Justin’s and Newport Bar and Grill among others.

Highly desirable corner location near the center of the Southport Corridor. 2,500 SF of space with a large outdoor patio. Bring your concept to an area with numerous national tenants and to a location that is 2 blocks from the Southport L stop.”
