Derby On Park In Five Points Is Shutting Down

The Derby on Park restaurant will close Dec. 30.

The Derby On Park in Five Points is closing Sunday, December 30.

The owners said the current restaurant is being closed to make way for a new concept that will open in early 2019.

“We are very grateful to all of our guests and will honor all gift cards during this transition. We are excited for what's to come and encourage you all to follow along on our new journey,” the owners said on their Facebook page.

The well-known restaurant changed hands in April after the space was leased to Dwayne Beliakoff and Jonathan Cobbs of nearby Five Points restaurant The Bread & Board, according to an archived story from our Florida Times-Union news partner.  

“All staff members will remain employed throughout the transition, and will be provided employment at the new concept next year,” the owners posted.
