Portland Hunt & Alpine Club (website, Facebook, Twitter) has leased 75 Market Street, the former location of Simply Home, as the spot for their new craft cocktail bar. The owners have been search high and low for just the right location even before they initially shared plans for the new bar back in November. You’ll be able to get wander amongst the bars at The Grill Room, Sonny’s and the Hunt & Alpine Club without leaving sight of Post Office Park.
The plans for the space include room for about 50 people in the main bar area with room for additional 10-12 in the private Lodge Members room. Owners Briana and Andrew Volk anticipate opening sometime in mid-Summer. If you just can’t wait that long, consider buying a ticket to the Not So Hush Hush cocktail event they’re holding this Thursday in conjunction with Eventide.
