LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new bar and restaurant is taking over a vacant building on Frankfort Avenue.

Avenue, which will feature a fusion menu and craft cocktails, is opening in the former Matt Anthony's Record Shop and Nita's Package Liquor Store. 

The executive chef said he is taking food from around the world and crafting it into taco-size portions.

It took the company approximately nine months to remodel the bar and the outside patio. 

"I think it's a nice addition to the neighborhood," Avenue owner Andrew Pruitt said. "We fixed up the corner. This building actually was probably the worst eye sore on the block, and we made it into a really nice place." 

Avenue, located at 2354 Frankfort Avenue, will celebrate its grand opening starting at 3 p.m. on Saturday. Regular hours will be 11 a.m. until 2 a.m. daily.
