New Location, New Look, New Name
For Immediate Release
In September of 2017 Governor’s announced that we had outgrown our current footprint and would be building a brand-new facility to house our friends and patrons. Our new facility will be located at 3636 Tanglewood Road in Bettendorf.
As we think about where we started, we would like take this opportunity to thank Dave Koenig, whose vision 43 years ago created the Governor’s brand--a brand that became a beloved spot to gather with family and friends. We would also like to thank our loyal patrons who have frequented Governor’s throughout those 43 years. We greatly appreciate the time you have chosen to spend with us; and we look forward to sharing our new space with you.
With Geifman First Equity bringing a new user to our previously leased facility, we were freed to let our imaginations run wild. It was then, we realized the existing space was not conducive to our new, more expansive plans. Our new facility consists of almost 7,400 square feet of bar, dining and private dining spaces. With an additional 8,000 square feet of outdoor enjoyment area for food, drinks or hanging out with friends and family. We believe the new facility will have something for everyone and become a place for the community to gather and celebrate for the next 43 years.
After a great deal of thought, as part of our evolution, we are excited to announce that we will also be changing the name of the restaurant from “Governor’s” to “The Tangled Wood”. We believe the new name embraces the scale and setting of the location as well as the communal feel we are striving to provide.
We have the utmost respect for the legacy of Governor’s, and changing the name was a very difficult decision. However, it may not be gone for good. You just never know if the name Gov’s Pub may pop up on a building in the Quad City area someday in the near future. We also invite you to explore our new location for the many items we have included throughout the space as a tribute to our Governor’s roots, including the Gov’s Pub Bar located within the Tangled Wood. We hope our friends and patrons will appreciate the embrace of our heritage as we look to the future.
The Tangled Wood, will be located at 3636 Tanglewood Road Bettendorf. We will be opening in early 2019.
