The Danforth in the West End

The new bar and restaurant under construction in the former Little Giant space in the West End will be called The Danforth. The Danforth is scheduled to open by the end of April as a neighborhood restaurant and bar with a strong classic cocktail program.

Renovations are well underway, and the general manager Lucy Comaskey shared that they are “aiming to create a space where the room and service are welcoming and intentional, and the food and drink are there to match in quality and comfort.”

The Danforth is being launched by Gin & Luck, the parent company of Death & Co. which operates cocktail bars in Los Angeles, Denver and New York. They are now hiring for an executive chef, front of house manager, and head bartender, and will soon be looking to fill a number of other positions.
