Michael Strauss, a commercial real estate broker who is buying the bar along with musician Pete Fry, said they will close the bar after they settle on the property at the end of the month and reopen quickly with 13 beers on tap.
They plan to keep the name for now, says the blog.
The chef will be Jennifer Choplin, who ran the kitchen at SoWe at 22nd and Carpenter. A change of mood is also on tap, says Insider:
They’ll go for a dark, candlelit atmosphere with music from a play list, not the current jukebox.
Has anyone been to the current bar? What’s it like?
