Phil Stefani’s Signature Restaurants is keeping busy. On Thursday, they announced a second Broken English Taco Pub, which looks to open next month in Old Town. And after several delays, they’ve announced a Dec. 1 opening date for Flamingo Rum Club, their Cuban-inspired cabaret spot.
Adolfo Garcia (Son of a Butcher, Pearl Tavern, Early Society) is once more partnering with Stefani as he has on the two taco pubs. Paul Tanguay, of the Tippling Bros.’ duo who created the drinks to the now-shuttered Tippling Hall, mixes up the drinks for Garcia and Stefani’s new space. The cocktails look to be rum heavy, hence the name, as Flamingo pledges to stock one of the largest rum selections in the country. Locally, they’ll compete with rum houses such as Lost Lake, Three Dots and a Dash, Paladar and Sparrow.
Live music and cabaret shows look to be a regular part of the rum club experience. They first announced the project back in August 2015.
