Drink Up! The Dudes from Oak to Open a Bar in Brooklyn
Last week we caught up with Louis Terline and Jeff Madalena, the two guys behind refinery fave, Oak. A pretty fruitful convo, actually, as we got the inside scoop on some pretty exciting news. The duo told us they're planning on opening up a bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, in the former Staropolski Meat Market & Deli space. As for the rest of the details, we have very little (so far, we'll be sure to keep you posted though)... something about plans for a very raw, simple space, set to open sometime this spring. And as for the inspiration for this latest venture? Purely financial. The guys figure that with the amount they drink, it would be more thrifty to simply open a bar of their own, where they'll always have an open tab. Cheers to that.
