The Tiger’s Den at 719 Jefferson St. opened in December. Vandderlee Hughes and Lamesha Newman opened the 2,000 square foot venue for events, which has a dance floor, seating area, bar and kitchen. Previously the couple operated Savanna’s Soul Food Restaurant and Event Space at 418 W. Elm but were washed out in last year’s flood. The Tiger’s Den is open by appointment and is also a catering business for events.
