You know what they say: when one door closes, another one opens. So, anyone mourning the loss of Caxton Street's short-lived, M*A*S*H-inspired Ginger's Diner best look on the bright side, because a new New Orleans-style cocktail and oyster bar is coming in its place.
Called Seymour's Cocktails and Oysters, the new spot hails from the same folks behind Ginger's, but they're giving the space a different twist. It'll be a cafe by day, drinking spot by night, serving up the titular booze and seafood from a brass-topped bar.
And, as Ginger's did before it, it'll benefit from not only sitting next door to the ever-popular Lefty's Old Time Music Hall, but also from belonging to the same stable of venues as its neighbour, the Hope and Anchor just up the road, and Sonny's House of Blues, Gordita, Peasant and Los Villanos as well. Are you thinking what we're thinking? Yep, you could go on a pretty tasty bar and restaurant crawl within that group of venues, with Seymour's shaping up to be the perfect finishing spot.
Find Seymour's Cocktails and Oysters at 15 Caxton Street, Petrie Terrace in the near future. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for more information.
