Fedora Lounge in River North is officially closed to undergo a complete remodel, including a new concept and a new name. Brooke Alexander and Jamie Tannenbaum, who are staying on, along with new partners Jason Zinkann (Elm St. Liquors) and Stu Mitchell (Blue 13), are hoping to breathe new life into the space.
The changes will include turning from a raucous late-night spot with DJs into more of a neighborhood hangout. The drink menu will focus on simple, classic cocktails and there are plans introduce house-made punches and expand the beer options. The menu will get a makeover as well, sticking to bar food (burgers, wings, macaroni and cheese), but offering up multiple add-ons. Fedora Lounge's chef Zachary Prince is staying on.
You can see the result of these changes when the reveal happens later this month.
