After a five-year run above Feelgoods Rock Bar and Grill on Clematis Street, Sub Culture Group's (the team behind Broward and Palm Beach fave's like DaDa Restaurant & Lounge, Tryst, and Kapow! Noodle Bar) Lost Weekend has closed its doors.
Don't get upset yet, however, it's just moving down the street.
Originally started by West Palm club scene mavens Rodney Mayo and Scott Frielich in 1995 on South Olive Boulevard, the concept moved to its most recent location (above Feelgoods) about five years ago.
The team shuttered its doors at the end of January, the book hasn't been closed on Lost Weekend yet. Instead, the goal is to get back to the original underground vibe with alternative/indy jukebox, vintage arcade games, and a rotation of art on the walls by local talent.
"We had a good five year run," said Frielich. "But the partners had a different vision of the space. We lost a bit of our direction with Feelgoods; Lost Weekend became more of an extension of it."
The bar will be moving to the 500 Block of Clematis (near Mayo's Hullabaloo and Longboards); it will continue to serve a wide selection of craft and commercial beers -- over 100 all together -- as well as popcorn.
The team recently got plans back from the architect, which have been turned over to the city for approval.
They hope to start building next month, with an expected opening sometime this summer.
Lost Weekend will be located at 520 Clematis Street in West Palm Beach.
