The swanky cocktail bar from the team behind Lost & Found is on track to open in the next two weeks.

What to expect: Owner Orlando Botero describes Broken Promises as the exact opposite of Lost & Found with New York and Tokyo influences.

  • The space will have a more dark, moody aesthetic with pops of color and light from neon signs and hologram installations.
  • This concept won’t have a dance floor but there will be rotating DJs Thursdays through Sundays playing Deep House music.
  • It’s 25 and up to enter and there’s no cover fee.

Drinks: The cocktail program will be directed by expert mixologist Bob Peters. Cocktails will range in price from $12-$18 and the menu will consist of 12 specialty cocktails, 10 classic cocktails and six mocktails.

Food truck: There will be a permanent on-site food truck serving Asian street food and small plates. Dishes to look out for include:

  • Pork belly buns
  • Gyoza
  • Red velvet ice cream sandwich

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.

Hours: Broken Promises will be open Tuesday through Friday from 5pm to 2am and Saturday and Sunday from 3pm to 2am (weekend hours will adjust to noon to 2am during football season).

Location: The exact address is 214 West Tremont Avenue, about a mile from Lost & Found.
