CHICAGO — Hooters is launching a new fast-casual restaurant concept named "Hoots" -- and it will feature both male and female servers.

The first Hoots restaurant will open near Chicago later this month , according to WGN. The 2,800 square foot restaurant will include 75 seats and a full service bar.

The restaurant's menu will feature the most popular signature items on Hooters' menu. It will also be more scaled-down with dine-in or take-out service and have a more "small-neighborhood" feel.

A company spokeswoman told The Tampa Bay Times  the iconic Hooters uniforms  will not be worn at the new restaurant.
