Q’s, an LGBTQ cafe and venue, closed just shy of a year in business. The spot recently had new ownership after the original owners had to raise funds online at the beginning of 2019 to pay off the business’s bills.

Just down the street, Denton Grille closed its doors at the end of March too. The restaurant at 209 W. Hickory St. is under renovation to become Les Muses Vintage.

A new Mediterranean restaurant option is almost here: Zoës Kitchen will open its first Denton location Monday, April 22 at Rayzor Ranch Town Center.
