Scotty’s Brew Club to Open in Franklin
A Scotty’s is coming to Franklin’s east side, opening in the Hillview Country Club. Restaurant entrepreneur Scott Wise has agreed to operate Scotty’s Brew Club at Hillview. The restaurant, open to the public, is targeting a mid-June opening. The menu includes some items featured at the popular Scotty’s Brewhouse restaurant in downtown Indianapolis. Scotty’s Brew Club also will have upscale wines and growlers. Hillview members will have special perks at the Scotty’s Brew Club.
Wise, who operates 11 Scotty’s eateries, said he is excited about having one of his restaurants in a country club setting. “It breaks the mold of what traditional restaurants are supposed to do and where to locate. It is thinking outside the box and taking a risk.”
Grimmer agreed: “We were looking for an agreement where we would own and operate the country club facilities and golf course and someone else would manage the restaurant.”
Grimmer, Jim Admire and Max Woodbury purchased Hillview Country Club in 2012. The clubhouse, restaurant area, banquet facility and swimming pool have been undergoing extensive renovations. Lou’s Den, a lunch pub, is already open to the public.
