Liquid Art House in Boston to Be Replaced by a New Concept

It looks like a combination restaurant/art gallery in Boston is being reconcepted.

According to an article in Bisnow, Liquid Art House on Arlington Street will be the site of a new venture, with Liquid Art House founder Ruta Laukien partnering with Turkish restaurant group Dogus Restaurant Entertainment and Management on the upcoming concept. The article says that the plan is to shut down the restaurant for six to eight weeks as soon as they get approval on changes to its liquor license, with renovations being made to the space. The new spot--which does not yet have a name--will feature globally-inspired fare and will be "more approachable," with a mix of formal seating and lounge-style dining, a raw bar, and a dessert-plating station being part of the space. The post says that Laukien is also looking at the West End of Boston and Miami for future locations of the new concept.

Liquid Art House first opened in the spring of 2012, moving into the former Boston Renaissance School building.

The address for Liquid Art House (and the upcoming dining spot replacing it) is 100 Arlington Street, Boston, MA, 02116.

[November 17 update: According to a Facebook post (and a message) from Henry Santoro of WGBH, Liquid Art House closes its doors tonight, with major renovations starting early next week as the space gets ready to be rebranded.]

[November 20 update: According to a notice within the E.F. Smith website, Liquid Art House is having an auction on Tuesday, November 28, with some of the items listed including a chandelier, a marble hostess stand, a white Italian marble oval bar top, a communal log table, and more.]

[May 16, 2018 update: It looks like the new restaurant replacing Liquid Art House could be getting close to opening, as a Craigslist post indicates that they are now hiring for all positions. (No name has been given for the restaurant as of yet.)]
