A Tokyo-style record bar is on its way to the Fenway, opening within an eclectic hotel restaurant and bar that also focuses on music.
According to an article from Boston Magazine, The Groove at Hojoko is planning to debut this Friday (April 19) in Hojoko's heated front porch space that up until now has been used for dining/drinking and private events. The post says that the lounge will take its cue from vinyl bars found in Japan that offer snacks, drinks, and analog music, and it will include bring-your-own vinyl nights, DJs, live music, and more.
Tim and Nancy Cushman, who are behind both The Groove and Hojoko, also run the award-winning o ya in Boston's Leather District, and they are opening a new spot in Chestnut Hill along with two stalls at the upcoming Time Out Market in the Fenway.
The address for The Groove at Hojoko is 1271 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02215. The website for Hojoko can be found at http://www.hojokoboston.com/
