That's what the former Abbey Lounge will become. In the summer, owners Josh Childs and Trina and Beau Sturm will open a space inspired by the '40s and '50s, serving affordable, Southern-influenced food and cocktails.
The Inman Square lounge comes with an affordable-bar pedigree: Childs is co-owner of Silvertone, and Trina and Beau Sturm are involved with City Bar and Highland Kitchen, respectively.
