Expect plenty of punch

Matt Cordes is replacing the now-shuttered Atlas Room with a new bar called The Haymaker.

The new concept is currently under construction, and the goal is to transform it into a comfortable neighborhood bar. Expect a low-key happy hour, and approachable food and drink, Cordes says. There will be 20 seats at the bar and 25-30 high top seats. They'll have 8-10 televisions, a pop-music soundtrack and a pretty straightforward look ("no mason jars with pickled vegetables," he jokes).

They're looking to reopen in mid- to late-June with six rotating draft beers according to regulars' preferences. The bar will serve five punches, including a signature bourbon-spiked one, a few classic cocktails, and some high-ball drinks. A small selection of wines by the glance will round out the offerings.

Cordes describes the food menu as "somewhere in-between Great American Restaurants and Buffalo Wild Wings," so that means burgers, sliders, wings, and some charcuterie. Expect regulars to also have a hand in helping shape the food offerings.
