According to the papers in the window at 276 King St., it appears that the high-profile restaurant space that once held The Gentry Bar & Room will be the new home of Savannah Bee Company. Currently located next door, at 270 King St., the honey and body care store always seems like a popular spot for shoppers to flock for free samples.

Last September, King Street passers-by noticed a sign in the window of five-month-old restaurant The Gentry declaring its move. According to Post & Courier, The Gentry was evicted for owing $163,233 in “unpaid rent and associated fees.” Owner John David Madison is the subject of a current lawsuit for the suit.

Eater reached out to Savannah Bee Company to see if there would be any restaurant or bar components to the updated location. Before The Gentry, the address was home to Mediterranean-ish restaurant Sermet’s, which was always busy during the lunch rush during its 23 years on the corner of King and Wentworth Streets.
