Did you know the Triangle closed Sunday night? It was news to me. Fremont Universe has the word though, and describes what’s up next for that well-known slice of the Fremont universe. According to the neighborhood Website:
Bartender Nate Rezac recently bought the bar and plans to reopen it later this month with a new menu and a new look. “It will be a 30s and 40s gangsta bar theme,” he told us. “9 Million in Unmarked Bills,” as the bar will be called, will feature a diverse menu, a smaller bar in the back room and drinks named after old gangsters. Rezac says he hopes to reopen on June 18th.

It’s been tough keeping up with the goings on at the Triangle (formerly a “Tavern” later a “Lounge,” soon to be a “gangsta bar”). Whether or not that’s a prescription for success remains to be seen.

If you’ve been drinking in this town long enough, you might remember the Triangle’s 1992 debut. Original owner James Weiman (see Bastille, the Ballroom, Talarico’s) sold the place six years ago to Rob Smith and Rick Fox. In 2007 it was sold to chef Tom Hurley, better known for his short-lived Madrona restaurant Coupage and his late, great eponymous temple of haute cuisine in Portland.
Anybody been to the Triangle lately? Thoughts on the upcoming changes?
