The Woolworth Bringing Classic Cocktails to Downtown

A new downtown cocktail bar called The Woolworth is in the works.

The Elm Street building, which was home to the (seemingly rather short-lived) Stone Street Martini Lounge that opened back in November, is in fact called the Woolworth Building due to the fact that it originally housed a Woolworth five-and-dime. (It was renovated to its current state as Stone Street Gardens back in 2002.)

A website for the bar (which according to the sign on the door, will launch in October) doesn't offer much, though it does say that the owners boast "a combined 40+ years in the food and beverage industry," and promises not just classic cocktails but "mouthwatering eats."

Of course, The Woolworth isn't the only retro-sounding cocktail bar on the horizon this fall; there's also Bowen House, an "1800's style saloon" coming to the McKinney Avenue spot formerly occupied by vintage shop Ahab Bowen. (And frankly, downtown could use a fresh infusion of classic cocktails following the sad demise of Eddie Campbell's The Chesterfield.)
