I know I’m just dishing myself up for snarky Tristan Simon-related comments this morning, but it’s Wednesday, and my head is fuzzy so I don’t really care. As it was first reported here, Consilient Restaurants is getting back into the bar biz with Victor Tango’s, a speakeasy/upscale pub/anti-nightclub opening up in the old Sense space. Estimated opening date is March 15.
What we know so far: There will not be any lists, bottle service, or guns–soda guns, that is. The focus is on handcrafted drinks with fresh ingredients (think the Porch’s Blackberry Smash), and in addition to cocktails, there will be a bar menu that rotates nightly. Which seems like it might be tough to pull off, but what do I know. Music will be eclectic, but will not include techno, and the vibe is casual. In lieu of traditional sign, they’re thinking of just using one with a martini glass. If the martini glass is illuminated, it means they’re open.
Oh yes–Victor Tango is bar slang for a vodka tonic. Now you know.
