Trophy's, the South Congress dive bar, is set to close and re-open in a few months as C-Boy's, a collaborative effort from the owner of the Continental Club and Larry McGuire, that rascal who owns basically every new restaurant opening (or re-opening) in Austin this year. Via the Austin American-Statesman:
C-Boy’s, the tentative name for the soon-to-open venue, will focus on funk, soul and R&B music, according to Continental Club owner Steve Wertheimer, a partner in the project. Food service is planned, bathrooms will be upgraded, and a new patio area will be created behind the building.
Wertheimer tells the daily that the building will undergo a "transformation" once Trophy's closes in the next week or so. He hopes to have C-Boy's open within three months, serving a menu designed by McGuire.
