Hammerhead closing for remodel, new nameFebruary 14, 2014
From local sources
JASPER — Hammerhead Bar & Grill will close after this weekend for four to six weeks as part of a plan to re-brand the eatery at 3117 Newton St. as a family restaurant.
Hammerhead will become Ohana Hawaiian Grill & Bar. “Ohana” means family in Hawaiian. Owner Yuan Mu of Jasper said the misconception is that Hammerhead, which would celebrate its sixth year in business this summer, is only a bar.
In fact, about 85 percent of the restaurant’s revenue comes from sales of Mu’s Hawaiian-style food.
He hopes the change to a family-centered location with a separate bar area will draw a more diverse customer base.
Mu will add several new entrees to the menu as well. The remodeled business will also include an outdoor sushi bar.
The inside will be altered to look more like a family restaurant. Mu will allow all current staff to return to work at Ohana when it reopens.
