Agave & Rye, a Tequila and Bourbon Hall delivering “epic tacos” and much more, is preparing to open its doors in Centerville

The grand opening will take place Wednesday, June 28 with a soft opening for friends and family two days prior.

“Centerville has a reputation of being such an amazing community that we couldn’t resist the opportunity to be part of it,” Yavonne Sarber, CEO and co-founder of Agave & Rye Tequila and Bourbon Hall previously said. “We’re so excited to celebrate the city itself with local food lovers and restaurant-goers.”

Agave & Rye will be located at 11 N. Main Street in the space that formerly housed Panera Bread. The 5,400-square-foot space is filled with unique artwork and vibrant music from the late 90s to now, said Sidney Asbury, leader of brand standards and epic culture. The restaurant’s concept walks an intriguing line between fine art and street art, which gives it the feel of “urban grunge.”

“We are excited Agave & Rye selected Uptown Centerville for its newest location,” Michael Norton-Smith, development director for the city of Centerville previously said. “Our work, as outlined in the Uptown Action Plan, is focused on making this district a more accessible, convenient space. We are already seeing significant private investment from business owners who see that potential.”

The restaurant seats 100 people outside and 158 people inside. Agave & Rye recently rolled out their summer menu across all locations featuring grilled street tacos and Asbury’s favorite strawberry jalapeño tequila salsa.

Agave & Rye first opened its doors in 2018 in Covington, Kentucky. Additional area locations include Troy and Liberty Township. The restaurant is also planning to open a new location in Hamilton at the intersection of Main Street and South East Street, which formerly housed Ritzi’s Service Station.
