I’m sure many have heard that CommonWealth, the new pub by the same owners as Hank’s Oyster Bar, will open its doors Wed. August 6th on Irving Street west of 14th. I was lucky enough to meet one of the designers of the logo (Soung, see tattoos below) who invited me in to take a look around and snap some photos. First of all let me say it looks like they are going to have a great outdoor dining area (photos after the jump). Inside was understandably a bit hectic as last minute details were getting ironed out and the waitstaff was getting trained. Even with all the craziness it had a very warm and open feel. I was excited to see checkers and chess tables, an open bar area and some very comfortable seats. I am super stoked to try the place. In the meantime get a taste of the place with lots of photos after the jump.
