Blake Street Tavern opening new interactive game room next month in the basement
After a seven year-run at 2401 Blake Street, the Blake Street Tavern moved a block south to its current bigger location at 2301 Blake Street, which was once home of Polly Esther's. Since the move almost three years ago, the venue has tried several different themes in the basement, including an homage to Polly Esther's with a lighted dance floor and then the country-centric club called Saloon. Next month, the basement, which is now being converted into an interactive game room, will try out a new theme.
General Manager Shelley Armand says they'll have bocce, corn hole, shuffleboard, Skee-Ball, basketball, leagues and other fun stuff. The floors are currently being redone and a draught system is being installed that will accommodate two-dozen beers. Armand says they're shooting for a soft opening of the space on Thursday, April 11. Check back for photos of the renovation closer to the opening date.
