Tomorrow, The Underground Pub, the 12-year-old bar and venue underneath Bosco's in the River Market, celebrates its grand reopening following a makeover.
Much has changed, according to owner Scott Harris. For one, it's dropped all thing British pub, including the word "pub" in it's name; now it's simply, The Underground. No more British pub food either. The menu is now solely the burgers and fried food variety of bar grub and only available for dinner, daily. The new look of the bar is dive-y, Harris said. The interior is all black, 4,000 Christmas lights are hanging from the ceiling and Prohibition-themed decor lines the walls.
"If Deep and Midtown had a baby, this is what it would look like," Harris said.
On the music front, Harris said he's planning on hosting less dance-y pop and more harder rock from local bands on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and possibly Tuesday night in the near future.
The Pacifiers perform on Friday at the reopening party.
