A Players Grille will open in the new Home2 Suites under construction in the booming Brooklyn area of Downtown Jacksonville.

The ground-level restaurant will include street-side dining and a sports-themed atmosphere. An abundance televisions will show the day's most important games, and each booth will have its own television to watch the sporting event of choice, the developers announced Thursday.

“It’s going to be a great place for hotel visitors to grab a bite to eat, but we believe it will also quickly become the neighborhood bar for Downtown residents to bring their families, catch a game and have a drink,” Corner Lot CEO Andy Allen said in a news release.

Corner Lot is partnering on the hotel with Kelco Management and Development. Home2 Suites is expected to open in early 2024.

Players Grille, based in Jacksonville, also has locations in Miramar, Mandarin and Oakleaf.
