Duluth's newest bar and restaurant is scheduled to open next month, and they're looking to hire about 100 people before then. 

The Tavern on the Hill will be holding a job fair on Tuesday and Wednesday from noon-7 p.m. at the Greysolon Plaza. 

Julie Thoreson, director of operations for New London Corporation, says they are looking to fill positions from hosts up to managers. 

Thoreson says the new grill in the Bluestone Lofts development on Woodland Avenue will feature fresh, local food that will fill a void in that neighborhood. 

"It's from the Blackwoods Group family," Thoreson said. "It's very different than anything anyone has seen around here... just very excited to be up on Woodland Avenue. It's a high-traffic area, and there's nothing up there and it just seemed like a no-brainer to be up there."

Thoreson says they hope to open towards the end of August.
