Warehouse Bar and Grille Is Opening in Boston's Financial District

A new restaurant and bar is on its way to downtown Boston, and it looks like it will be one part gastropub, one part sports bar.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Warehouse Bar & Grille is planning to open on Broad Street in the city's Financial District, with the restaurant's Facebook page indicating that it is moving into the space where Knoll Office Furniture used to be. The new spot will have seating for a bit over 100 people, and it is looking to  "bridge the gap between sports bars and upscale eateries by providing a warm, casual, and stylish space." The person behind Warehouse Bar & Grille is Cliff Dever, who comes from the nearby Battery Park Bar & Lounge on Batterymarch Street, while Nathaniel Durost (formerly of Stephanie's on Newbury) will be in charge of the kitchen.

Expect a mid-August opening for Warehouse Bar & Grille, according to the Globe.

[September 11 update: A Facebook post from Cliff Dever indicates that Warehouse Bar & Grille is planning to open this weekend.]

[September 16 update: It looks like Warehouse Bar & Grille was open for friends and family only over the weekend, but according to a new Facebook post from the restaurant, the place will apparently be closed today with an official opening coming tomorrow.]

The address for this new restaurant and bar in the Financial District is: Warehouse Bar & Grille, 40 Broad Street, Boston, MA, 02109. Its website can be found at http://www.thewarehouseboston.com/ while its Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/warehouseboston
