If you're a fan of Brennan's (4659 Maryland Avenue, 314-497-4449) — and seriously, who isn't a fan of Brennan's? — you'll want to check this out: The beloved bar's sister spot is opening its bar for the first time next week.
Brennan's Work & Leisure (3015 Locust Street, 314-620-3969), the Midtown spinoff of the Central West End original, opened its doors last year. But it's existed to date as a coworking space and a daytime cafe, with hours from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays and no weekend or evening availability.
That changes next Friday, April 26 — with the debut of a drinks lineup similar to that at the original location, a food menu courtesy of chef Ben McArthur and regular evening hours four days a week. After the grand opening, the bar plans to be open Wednesdays and Thursday from 4:30 to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4:30 to midnight.
Like its sister spot, this Brennan's won't just be serving food and drinks. Bocce is already on site, and a custom shuffleboard table (by Goebel & Co. Furniture) is underway. The space also boasts "custom backgammon and chess boards," by artist and graphic designer David Rygiol, and "a listening room featuring dozens of new and classic albums on vinyl, a turntable with new and vintage headphones," according to a press release.
