Downtown Orlando's surf-themed beer bar, Tap & Grind, will open a second location in the Mills 50 district this fall.

As first reported by The Daily City, the new watering hole will be located at 1213 N. Mills Ave.

Manager Jackie Kopie told us that the concept has not quite been hammered out yet, and that they're still in the brainstorming/creative stages of the project.

Sandwiched between BART and the Guesthouse, the new Tap & Grind spot will only add to the already robust bar scene on this particular stretch of Mills Avenue.

No exact opening date has been announced.
