It’s called Broken Promises, and it’ll open late summer/early fall 2021.
Concept: Owner Orlando Botero and his partners want Broken Promises to be a laid-back cocktail lounge. Unlike Lost & Found, which is temporarily closed due to the ongoing pandemic, it won’t have a dance floor and the menu will focus on craft cocktails.
- “It’s the place to go before you party at Lost & Found, or you can hang out in a more intimate setting until 2 a.m.,” Botero says.
Design: It’s still in the early planning stages, but the concept is inspired by swanky bars in big cities like New York and Tokyo. Think black brick walls, dark sleek furniture, and neon signs.
- The space is about 2,000 square feet with a large patio, Botero says.
Location: West Tremont Avenue, about a mile from Lost & Found. Botero declined to give the exact address. Our original guess was the former Zeppelin space, but that will now be a new concept called PARA (more details to come!).
Big picture: “Right now all of our energy is focused on South End,” Botero says, but the eventual goal, he says, is to create a few different brands in the area, all with a different vibe.
