Louis 649, pre-renovation.

Boilermaker's Greg Boehm, Louis 649's Zach Sharaga, and master bartender Nico de Soto will open their bar Mace later this month, just in time for the spring thaw. The 40-seat bar in the remodeled Louis 649 space will have a tight 12-drink menu inspired by spices from around the globe, including smokey paprika, fiery Thai chilis, earthy cardamom, and of course, mace.

Bar food will come from Miguel Trinidad, who has logged hours in the kitchens of neighborhood restaurants Jeepney and Maharlika, as well as Boilermaker (where he serves a killer burger). No word on that food menu quite yet, but the team did share its full drink menu. Check it out:
