There are a lot of country music fans across the SouthCoast, including yours truly.

It's been nearly two months since Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill closed its doors for good. However, a new country-themed bar is coming to the same location at 275 Patriot Place, offering a rebirth of live music to the area.

Six String Grill and Stage will be a “full-service restaurant and live music venue,” with an 80-seat bar and 16 beers on tap. With plans to open in summer of 2019, they'll serve lunch and dinner, as well as nightlife entertainment galore. Plus, TV screens will cover the walls so you can catch the game, any game, while you grab a bite to eat.

Six String will feature a large, rustic-style stage with plenty of front-row viewing, as well as VIP seating. So, live music will be better than ever.

There will also be space to host a private function if you're thinking about having a birthday party, or other types of events there.

I like how this place is going to revive that "country bar feel" in the middle of Patriot Place. I'll give it a shot.
