You could soon be wasting away again in Margaritaville — in downtown Atlanta.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that the chain — which features a laid-back vibe in menu in keeping with musician and Margaritaville partner Jimmy Buffett’s lyrics — has been working with the owners of Skyview Atlanta, the Ferris wheel across from Centennial Olympic Park, to bring the restaurant to the area around the park. The restaurant is eyeing a summer 2017 opening, though its not a done deal — the design will need to go before city officials for planning and permitting.

There are more than 30 Margaritaville restaurants around the world. Cheeseburger in Paradise, a Buffett-associated restaurant, closed at Perimeter Place in Dunwoody in 2012.
