The proprietors of a former restaurant on James Island are bringing a new venue to the previous location.
The owners of British pub and eatery My Father’s Moustache in Mount Pleasant plan to open a second location at the former site of J. Paul’z, which they once operated, at 1739 Maybank Highway.
A sign announcing the new establishment is beside the door at the property, which is under renovation. The owners also recently applied for an on-site alcohol license through Premier Pubs LLC.
The 3,200-square-foot outparcel property is in the Harris Teeter-anchored James Island Center. J. Paul’z closed about a decade ago, and a restaurant called Cure operated there for a few years after opening in 2015. The site has been vacant for a couple of years.
An opening date for the new My Father’s Moustache has not been announced. The East Cooper venue’s website says it’s the Charleston-area headquarters of English Premier League football. It’s at 1405 Ben Sawyer Blvd.
The owners did not immediately respond for comment about the James Island location.

The 30,000-square-foot store near the College of Charleston will employ about 60 people and be the fifth location in the Lowcountry for the Minneapolis-based big-box retailer.
Altogether, the company employs 850 workers in the Charleston area at its new downtown site and its four standard-size stores in Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, Summerville and West Ashley.
Last year in the Charleston area, Target donated nearly $510,000 in cash grants and products to area nonprofits and provided more than 2,000 volunteer hours in community service, according to a spokeswoman.
