The Matchbox set to open tonight in former Orange Cat space on Larimer

The Matchbox is set to open tonight in the former Orange Cat Studios at 2625 Larimer Street. Squire Lounge owner Sudhir Kudva and partners Justin Anthony and Lisa Vedovelli spent a few months overhauling the spot, putting in new bathrooms and a garage door window in the front and demolishing the back of the building to make way for a patio (and eventually a beer garden and Bocce ball court). The casual bar has a number of local beers on tap, as well as unique cocktails that aren't super-expensive, Kudva says. Watch for a grand opening celebration on March 25.
