Doghouse restaurant opens Wednesday in Tyrone area

The Doghouse Bar & Grill, popular Harley hangouts in Myrtle Beach, Daytona Beach and Fayetteville, N.C., opens its first Tampa Bay location on Wednesday in a former Hooters at 2901 Tyrone Boulevard.

It's the fourth store in a sports bar venture owned by David Marshlack and Bruce Hammil, who also own the Central Oyster Bar and Bishop Tavern and Lounge in downtown St. Petersburg. The partners spent $200,000 remodeling Hooters, almost doubling capacity to 250 seats, half of it on an outdoors deck.

The fare is moderately-priced pub food with a full liquor bar and plans for concerts, pay per view events, live sports events and motorcycle run gatherings. The bartenders are called "The Hog Wild Girls." It's the fourteenth store operating under eight brands owned by their St. Petersburg-based Dog House Group, which includes two Secrets topless clubs in the Carolinas.

Marshlack was an owner of the Voyeur Dorm, a Web site that gained national notoriety in 1999 by charging subscribers $34 a month to watch cameras airing the domestic life 24/7 of a half dozen young women living in a West Tampa house.
