Rogue Lounge May Be Moving into The North Star Space Near Boston's North Station
It looks like a new dining/drinking spot could be taking over a space near North Station where a sports bar currently resides.
According to a source in the media, The North Star on Friend Street is petitioning to transfer its license to a new spot tentatively called Rogue Lounge, which would open at the same address. Little other information has been given about the proposed place, so keep checking back for updates.
The North Star first opened in September of 2010, taking over the space where DJ's at the Garden had been. The restaurant and bar is known for its classic American fare along with its variety of beer, wine, and cocktails.
The address for The North Star (and proposed Rogue Lounge) is 222 Friend Street, Boston, MA, 02114. The website for The North Star can be found at http://northstarboston.com/
[March 16 update: A licensing board hearing page within the City of Boston website has confirmed the above news--that Rogue Lounge is seeking to take over the space where The North Star currently resides.]
[March 23 update: Universal Hub mentions that Rogue would be a "calmer" and more "professional" spot that would apparently cater to those moving into the new residences in the North Station area. (The city is expected to make a decision on the place today.)]
