A New Home for The Swamp
The Swamp Restaurant will return to Gainesville in 2022 in a brand-new building that captures the charm and likeness of the original, historic landmark.
The Swamp Restaurant, a grill, bar, and event venue that served as a staple cultural landmark in the Gainesville community from its establishment in 1994 to its closure and demolition in the Summer of 2020 will be returning to Gainesville in 2022 in a newly constructed building that will fully capture the unique character, charm, and likeness of the original, historic building in which it was located for over twenty-five years.
The Swamp Restaurant will move from its former location at 1642 W. University Avenue in the area known as Midtown to a location at 1026 SW Second Avenue in the Gainesville Innovation District, less than two blocks from the University of Florida’s main entrance on Southwest 13th Street. It plans to re-open in August 2022 in time for the first game of the Florida Gators football season.
