The South End will welcome a new bar and restaurant to Columbus Avenue in the coming months, in the space once occupied by Columbus Cafe.
Five Horses Tavern, a Somerville restaurant located in Davis Square, is expanding with a second location at 535 Columbus Avenue in the South End.
The new bar and restaurant will reportedly be similar to its location in Davis Square, serving microbrews and craft beer, and Amercian comfort food, according to Boston food blog Eater. The renovated space will feature a dining room, bar, and outdoor patio, with accordian style windows that will open up completely during the warmer months.
Five Horses Tavern is opening a 2,295 square-foot restaurant with a dining room, bar and bathrooms on the first floor; kitchen and storage on the garden level; and a seasonal patio with seating for 30 patrons.
The former restaurant, Columbus Cafe, closed earlier this year.
There's no word yet on exactly when the new restaurant will open. South End Patch will have more information as it becomes available.
