Tropics Piano Bar & Restaurant owners Godfrey Thompson and Alex Meyer had hoped to reopen their establishment by the end of December. But the restaurant’s liquor license application is still under review by the state, according to Meyer and a representative of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
Otherwise, said Meyer, Tropics has been remodeled and is ready to reopen.
Opened in 1992, Tropics closed in July. At the time, it was owned by Jackson Padgett who purchased it from Meyer and Thompson. “We believe Tropics is very important for the community. That’s why we decided to reopen it. It’s [going to be] the old Tropics with a twist,” Meyer told SFGN in December.
