Five-year-old Downtown bar Sixth Street Tavern has closed, posting a shut down notice on social media over the weekend. But don’t worry the property isn’t going away entirely, it’s just changing things up with a brand new look, feel, and name.
The reborn project is to be called Corner Cantina, and will focus on California Mexican flavors across the usual spectrum of dishes like nachos, quesadillas, tacos, and the like. And, because the Artisanal Brewers Collective now owns the entire ACME Hospitality portfolio in Downtown, there will be some vegan and vegetarian dishes on the menu to boot, including the option to trade out ground beef for Impossible Meat instead.
What’s more, the ABC team says they’ll be swapping in a bunch of new mezcal and tequila bottles, and making sure the tap lines run with brighter summertime craft beers like IPAs and pale ales, to better fit with the new mood. The whole thing should take just about a week to turn, with Corner Cantina folks hoping for a new (or, rather, re-)opening on Monday, June 18.
