The Broadway corridor has seen several businesses come and go within the last few years. This time, instead of closing to make room for a 10-story office building, the bar stays, gets new owners and a makeover. Pink's Patio, which opened late December 2015, is now Social Spot
The takeover by Sergio Acosta means the bar will keep regular business hours of 4 p.m. to midnight on Thursday and Friday, noon to 1 p.m. Saturday and noon to midnight Sunday. For now, the 26-year-old is adding new beers to the lineup, in bottle and draft. A liquor license is in the works so bar-goers can expect to wind down with stronger stuff in the coming weeks — including drinks from a margarita machine. Happy hour runs Thursday through Sunday from 5 to 8 p.m. with $3 domestics, $3.50 imports and $3.75 16-ounce drafts.
More changes include a rotation of food trucks, regularly scheduled live music and DJ sets, a game room, drinking games such as giant beer pong and Jenga to play along the giant outdoor patio, a new outdoor screen, and murals along the side of the buildings. For now Acosta is taking any and all feedback (more shade, more signage) from bar-goers in advance of Social Spots August grand opening.
