A new tenant is already getting ready to reopen in the space recently vacated by Hillsdale neighborhood establishment Three Square Grill—and the moving bill will be pretty low.
Korkage Wine Bar and Shop will move across the street from its curent location into the former Three Square Grill's space by July.
With the move, owners Tamairah Boleyn and Earl Johnson plan to unveil a full menu. The team revealed a new direction in a press release, spotlighting aims for "multi-course small bites and family-feast style dining for lunch" and "brunch and dinner featuring fresh, local ingredients".
The wine bar—which will continue to offer a large Northwest-centric bottle collection and live entertainment at the new location—has gained a loyal following in and out of the Hillsdale community. Now, Boleyn and Johnson hope to leverage that loyalty to help them grow. The team is launching a Kickstarter campaign in the coming days, aimed at raising funds to help complete the new space.
Korkage will shutter its current location on June 27. Boleyn and Johnson plan on a July 9 reopening with expanded hours at 6320 SW Capitol Highway.
