  • Outer Rim Tiki Cabaret: Not much is known about this themed bar, but based on its name and a few posts on their Instagram page, we can assume it will be sci-fi or “Star Wars” themed. An opening date beyond this summer has not been announced.
  • GOGO’s Disco: This will be a “disco lounge, with groovy cocktails, dancing queens, duck pin bowling, and the most radical music to get your jive on,” according to the bar’s Instagram page.

  • The Society: Bar None’s website hints at this being a “membership only” bar, perhaps a speak-easy, but nothing else is known.
  • Red Door: Nothing is yet known about this new location, and an Instagram page gives virtually no clues.
