A new bar that will have a diversity of offerings but will focus on whiskey is set to open sometime this summer.
Whiskey House is set to take over the former Brophy’s Irish Pub location at 60 SW Second Ave. The business is still in the planning stages and is working with the city on remodeling approvals.
“We’re doing it completely different,” said co-owner Blake Haley, adding that he hopes to open sometime this summer.
The beer selection will include local, craft and domestic beers, and the whiskeys will be numerous and will be served in a variety of mixed drinks, Haley said.
“We’re going to sell any kind of whiskey you can imagine,” he said.
BubbaQue’s and Hungry Howie’s
BubbaQue’s and Hungry Howie’s vacated Magnolia Parke on April 1.
Located in the 4000 block of Northwest 39th Avenue, both franchises shared an owner. BubbaQue’s opened in early 2012 after room was made by removing the Hungry Howie’s buffet.
Bosshardt Realty has been showing the space.
“We have a couple people out there looking … but we haven’t signed any leases yet,” said Eric Ligman with Bosshardt.
Corner, the Latin American restaurant at 1220 W. University Ave., has closed and was replaced in mid-April by Maui Grill, according to Nikita Patalinghug, owner of Maui Teriyaki
The restaurant includes some of the same menu items as Maui Teriyaki, plus a selection of a la carte Polynesian grill items.
