According to Thrillist, the official opening day for The Tar Pit has been pushed back a few days to December 18. However, this coming Monday Mark Peel and Audrey Saunders open up for a little press pre-party, so we'll share details on that come Tuesday. Anyway, above, a first photo of the finished space and what a looker it is. Love those art deco booth partitions. By now you know it's all about the '40s and rum, and The Tar Pit crew has hired quite the impressive assortment of mixologists to ensure that those neo-tropical cocktails are mixed and muddled to pure perfection (plus bartenders have to go through a 3-week boot camp, yikes).
In addition to Milk & Honey alums Chad Solomon and Christy Pope, you just might spot your fave Edison shaker as well. Get excited!
