Estragon to Open Bar Gogo in Former Las Ventas Space in Boston's South End
Last fall, we reported that a food shop and deli in Boston's South End had closed down, and that the space would be used by the restaurant next door. Now we have learned a bit more about how the space--which will be up and running next month--will be used.
According to an email sent yesterday, Estragon on Harrison Avenue is opening a Sunday night-only spot called Bar Gogo in the former Las Ventas space next door, while the space will be used for private functions and events the rest of the time. The email says that Bar Gogo will feature a supper menu and a rotating list of cocktails to patrons, with food coming from chef Julio de Haro and drinks coming from bartender Sahil Mehta. The bar will debut on June 12, according to the note.
Las Ventas--which is owned by the same family that runs Estragon--closed last November after being in business for approximately eight years.
The address for Bar Gogo (and the new function/event space) is 700 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118.
