Nathanial Rateliff, Hi-Dive Owners Open New Bar
Tomorrow, Friday July 22, the Overland Bar is opening its doors at the former Bushwackers Saloon space at 1967 S. Broadway. The bar comes courtesy of owners Matty Clark and Josh Terry, of Hi-Dive, general manager Chip Dziedzic of the band Major Sports, chef Josh Kauffman, formerly of Hi-Dive, Ace, Steuben’s, Wild Catch, and Old Major, and an unexpected investor—local musician Nathanial Rateliff and his band the Night Sweats.
While the partnership is undeniably rooted in music, Overland will focus on cocktails and food, rather than live music. The 90-person bar and patio will focus on locally-sourced, Colorado-inspired cuisine, such as lamb, steak, green chili and various Mexican-American influences. The bar program will include simple cocktails with Colorado spirits as well as local breweries on tap.
Don’t write off the possibility of a Night Sweats show just yet. The owners say that acoustic or jazz acts are not out of question in the future.
Rosenberg’s To Pop-Up Weekly at the Source
Following several successful weeks at the Slow Foods Farmers Market, Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen have announced they will become a permanent pop-up fixture at The Source. On Sunday July 24, the New York-style bagel joint will be popping up in RiNo Yacht Club every week. This comes after a May 1 fire that caused an indefinite closure of their Five Points storefront.
“Unfortunately, due to construction delays and other factors out of our control, we do not expect our shop in Five Points to reopen until at least early September,” said Rosenberg’s owner Joshua Pollack. “However, we’re excited at the opportunity to be a permanent vendor at the Slow Food Farmers Market and look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday mornings at The Source.”
Guests can get their Rosenberg’s fix every Sunday through October, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., or until supplies run out.
Displaced Mary Jane’s Pizza, Fat Jack’s Re-Open
The January 13 sale of the century-old Dickinson Plaza to Trammall Crow Residential has caused some changes over the last six months. Despite the displacement, Mary Jane’s Pizza and Fat Jack’s Subs will return to new spots. The former will reopen at 3090 Downing Street; the latter will open down the street at 2015 West 32nd Avenue.
The property on the corner of West 32nd Avenue and Tejon St. in the Lower Highland neighborhood had been in Henry Dickinson’s family for 115 years, and was sold to the Texas-based real estate development company.
