Tom Bergin's soft opening tonight
After a lengthy closure and lots of anticipation about the outcome of a change of ownership and significant renovation, the historic Mid-City Irish pub Tom Bergin's will soft open tonight (Thursday).
Owners Brandon Boudet and Warner Ebbink (Little Dom's, 101 Coffee Shop) worked hard to maintain the bar's classic dark-wood look, which dates back to 1936, and brought on mixologists Marcos Tello and Aidan Demarest to craft a lengthy menu of Irish whiskeys and imported beers.
Read all about the new menu and vibe in this sneak peek at the place before it opened.
