New Tenant Announced for Former Hopcat Space in the Loop

After three years of being closed due to the pandemic, the space at 6315 Delmar Boulevard is finally getting a new tenant. The beloved Loop restaurant Three Kings Public House, which was ravaged by fire last year, has found a new home just three doors down from its original location.

New Location Found for Three Kings Public House

Nearly a year after the devastating fire that forced Three Kings Public House to close its doors, the owners have found a new home for their beloved restaurant. The new location is just three doors down from the old one, at the two-story building that was previously occupied by Hopcat.

New Location Offers Turn-Key Space

The new location at 6315 Delmar Boulevard was chosen for its turn-key space, which will allow the restaurant to open sooner rather than later. The building features brick walls and beautiful wood floors, making it a perfect fit for Three Kings’ aesthetic.

Original Location Suffered Significant Damage

The original location at 6307 Delmar has been closed since the fire in April, and the damage was too significant to rebuild in a timely manner. The owners had initially hoped to reopen in the same building, but the new location offers a quicker solution.

New Location Keeps Three Kings in the Loop

The owners considered other locations in the Loop, such as the former spaces of Pi Pizzeria and Cicero’s. However, the Cicero’s building needed too much work, and the Pi location was just over the county line in St. Louis city. The owners wanted to stay in University City and keep Three Kings in the Loop.

Loop Still a Vibrant Destination

Despite recent struggles in the Loop, the owners of Three Kings are confident in the area’s potential. They point to the success of their restaurant before the fire and the continued popularity of the Loop for events and dining. They are excited to be back in the Loop and contribute to its vibrant atmosphere.

New Location Offers More Space

The new location at 6315 Delmar is 6,300 square feet, which is 2,000 more than the old Three Kings spot. However, the owners are not worried about the extra space and are confident that they will continue to do well in the Loop.

Conclusion

After a long search, Three Kings Public House has found a new home in the Loop. The turn-key space at 6315 Delmar Boulevard will allow the restaurant to open sooner rather than later, and the owners are excited to be back in the vibrant neighborhood. The new location offers more space and keeps Three Kings in University City.
