The 1933 Group is on a roll. Last month partners Dimitri Komarov, Dmitry Liberman and Bobby Green morphed Little Cave into the tequila and mezcal-soaked den La Cuevita, now they've snapped up a space on Vine just south of Fountain to launch their seventh bar, Sassafras. Scheduled to debut next month, this 3,000 square foot watering hole, the largest 1933 Group venue to date, is inspired by the deep South and will serve as the hospitality group's flagship location. Always knowing he wants to open a Southern bar, Green spent the past few years collecting vintage relics from various southern regions of country.
As one might assume, Sassafras will serve root-inspired intoxicants containing both sassafras (makes root beer) and sarsaparilla, in addition to barrel-aged cocktails. Live Americana, Southern, and roots music is planned for the outdoor patio. [EaterWire]
