Ludacris has announced that he is closing his midtown restaurant, Straits Atlanta, and will be opening a new restaurant called Chicken N Beer inside Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
The airport’s concession contracts were approved Tuesday in a lengthy City Council meeting.
Chicken N Beer was also the title of Luda’s 2003 album that almost went gold in its first week out and featured the hit “Stand Up.” The restaurant will serve comfort food and craft beers using locally grown ingredients.
Ludacris has operated Asian eatery Straits for four years with partner Chris Yeo.
“As I continue to learn and evolve as a businessman, I am extremely excited to put my restaurateur footprint into a new venture inside the busiest international airport in the United States, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport,” Ludacris said in a press release. “Straits was a great segue into the industry and with Chicken N Beer I can create my own concept. I look forward to expanding my creativity and driving to a much higher plane.”
Chicken N Beer will be located in Hartsfield’s Concourse D.
