The Blue Hill Tavern is open
Last week, I people started e-mailing me about the Blue Hill Tavern in Brewer's Hill (938 S. Conkling St.). They wanted to know if I'd been there yet. I e-mailed them back, and they told me it hadn't opened yet. I guess I'm supposed to be able to walk through walls.
Anyhow, my pal Evan and I made the trip out there last Thursday. My jaw dropped as we drove by. If I'm not mistaken, this building used to be a scruffy-looking little lesbian bar called Gallagher's. These days, you'd never know ...
The Blue Hill Tavern's owners must have invested a boatload of money into the space. It's one of the sharpest new restaurant/bars I've seen in a while. Wood beams stretch up the front of the building, and the stone bar back had its own little waterfall.
We weren't able to stay and have drinks, because it was friends and family night (as in, friends and family of the owners). But I'm definitely going to have to go back soon. I want to see more of that place.
