Look for the former Q Bar space atop the Eastern Inn to reopen in July with a new look and name. Q was arguably the city’s best cocktail joint when it opened in 2005 and lasted nearly a decade before finally closing.
Now George Zhou, who helped found the place but left a few years ago to open George’s Bar in the base of Workers Stadium, is working with several investors to revamp the bar and rooftop. He says the cocktail menu will have prices closer to 2005 than 2015.
I stopped by Friday and renovations were already under way. I’ll post more details on the “new Q” when I get them. The photos show some views from the bar.
