Good-Bye Whiskey Girl...Hello, Barleymash

Whiskey Girl, one of Downtown's most popular spots for late-night/early-morning drunken debauchery, is moving out of its space on the corner of Fifth and Market. But fear not stoked frat boys, bachelorette gaggles and metrocentric boozehounds, a new tenant with enthusiasm for good times and alcoholic beverages is moving right on in.

The space is being taken over by the Verant Group, which includes Tavern at the Beach, True North Tavern, Sandbar Sports Grill, Offshore Tavern and Grill, West Coast Tavern and Brewley's Pint. The name for the new venue, the group's first in downtown, will be barleymash. It's an homage to barley's role as a key ingredient in two libations that are en vogue in SD right now - beer and whiskey. As such, they intend to have a wide variety of both on hand.

The food component will consist of yet-to-be-defined "progressive bar fare" built around an "Americana" theme will also be present in the venue's interior design. Details are few at this point, but barleymash is slated to open in March of next year and will be located at 600 Fifth Avenue. Given the constant flow of tourists and partygoers on the Gaslamp's main drag, it's a prime location. Proof comes via the success of Searsucker, another resto with a wide open floorplan and elements of Americana right across the street. Is there enough hunger for this concept to fill two such eateries? Guess we'll find out.
