According to his blog, Steven Fitzpatrick Smith of the Royale and Panda Athletic Club has purchased a new property at the corner of Cherokee Street and Iowa Avenue. Smith writes:

I plan on putting in a new place in there not unlike the Royale. It will not be another Royale, but it will be in the same family spirit. It will be different to be sure. Distinctly different. But a some basic standards will be the same. As I have said about the Royale: it is a place you can go with your friends, on a date, or even a place you can easily take your mother for a comfortable drink.

Smith projects an opening sometime next year.
