Blue Rooster Location Back on Market

The property formerly known as the Blue Rooster is currently available for purchase.

If you haven't noticed, the Old Town Lilburn location that once housed the Blue Rooster Cafe is back on the market.

So far, there have been plenty of inquiries, but no firm offers, according to the realtor in charge of its listing.

"We've had a lot of people interested in the property," said Sam Hale of the Hale Retail Group, "Many of them have expressed that before The Blue Rooster closed it was very lively. Most of the people that I've spoken with were interested in reviving that same feeling."

Since the popular , residents of Lilburn have mourned its loss. As a popular gathering space for local events, the Blue Rooster had become a central hub for activity in Old Town. Now after six months, foreclosure and bank purchase, it's looking for owners.

"The bank is more interested in people who want to buy the property rather than lease," said Hale.

Two of the more serious offers Hale has received were from people who were interested in re-opening the space as a restaurant to continue the customer base of the Blue Rooster. While interest may be booming, the economy is not and many who have inquired have been unable to make a reasonable offer for the space.

"The economy isn't great right now and so far we've gotten very low offers," said Hale. "We're optimistic that the right one will come because Old Town needs a space like that to come back."
