Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The 1933 Group -- who also operates Bigfoot Lodge, Thirsty Crow, Oldfield’s Liquor Room, Bigfoot West and Little Cave -- will be opening a Southern-themed bar called Sassafras slated to start serving in July. Sassafras will be the Group’s largest space to date at 3,000 square feet, and it will serve as their flagship location. The designers are going for an old-timey, down-home vibe, which they hope to achieve by using repurposed and authentic vintage pieces from the South.

As for the drinks, those behind the stick at Sassafras will shake up barrel-aged cocktails and root inspired libations like sarsaparilla and sassafras. They also plan on featuring live music on the outdoor patio area.
