After a dozen years at 1424 Market Street, Mynt Mojito Lounge is reopening this Friday, July 15, in much bigger digs a few doors down at 1410 Market Street, the former home of Spill Lounge, which opened in 2003 and recently closed. The new Mynt spot, which has an upstairs VIP room and a rooftop patio, is much roomier than the old location, and Mynt manager Jessie Mack says it should be able to accommodate larger crowds than the old space, which often had lines outside.
Mack says the space pretty much had to be gutted and that it now looks a lot different than when it was Spill. He also says with the roomier digs, they'll be able to do bigger events and parties that they weren't able to do at the old spot. The new Mynt will also have a food menu that includes burgers, wings and more.
