Get ready for the Tavern Wash Park

The previous occupant of 1066 South Gaylord, Chi Bistro, was one of Jason Sheehan's most hated restaurants, as is evident from this review.

But everyone -- parking-paranoid Wash Park residents included -- should be pleased by the place that will be opening in that spot on Monday, October 27. It's the Tavern Wash Park, the fifth in a string of local Taverns brought to us by Frank Schultz (who also owns the Cowboy Lounge and the Soiled Dove). His bars have been good neighbors in their other locations -- Downtown (in the original Soiled Dove location), Uptown, the Tech Center and Lowry -- and the Wash Park model promises the same upscale atmosphere and tavern food, seven days a week.
