Downtown really is rising! Speakeasy
, a new private club occupying the space that formerly housed Mynt Martini (and the short-lived Pearl "Ultra" Lounge), will host a soft opening tonight with music by Rita Boudreau. The Rockin Jukes headline Saturday, followed by a grand opening on Tuesday, May 5 with both bands playing a taco-bar-fueled Cinco de Mayo bash. Speakeasy, which opens daily at 5 p.m., will specialize in live jazz and blues. Cheers to that.
