SHAY, the forthcoming restaurant concept by the SPOT ON Group— the folks behind Cuvee— is slated to start serving next month. It'll be open for business Wednesdays through Saturdays, and will feature light dishes and cocktails in an upscale lounge atmosphere. The former Crescendo space has been completely gutted to house it, which will open in September.
The owners wanted the space to be like an intimate and luxurious hotel bar where guests can begin and finish their evenings. Expect a feminine feel with warm lighting and soft colors, as well as two raised VIP areas and a back alley entrance that aim to enhance the feel of exclusivity. Any interested parties can schedule their own hard hat tour during the buildout.
