PoP Preview – G2 Restaurant and Lounge


Back in Dec. ’08 we looked at G2 when it was a deli. There was always supposed to be a lounge upstairs, but various permitting issues delayed the opening. It appears that those issues have now been taken care of. I spoke with owner, Sampson who has owned the building 3 years, who told me that he hopes to open this coming Saturday. The downstairs, formerly a Blimpie’s before it was a deli, will now be a restaurant featuring a potpourri of cuisines including Mexican, Italian, Ethiopian and American fare. There will also be tvs where you can watch sporting events.


The upstairs will house the lounge. I think it looks pretty good.


In addition to a regular lounge there will special event evenings including Jazz night, Ethiopian music, Latino music, and an open mic night including comedy. I think this has the potential to be pretty sweet. I’d love to check out some Ethiopian music. I can see that being very, very cool.

Couple more photos of the lounge after the jump.
