BREAKING NEWS! Madrina's, the long awaited Cuban-inspired bar is now open. Surprise! I first broke the news over on my Instagram earlier this evening. Located at the former Stubbies & Steins location at 9 West University Avenue, their soft opening was held tonight. Through Tuesday, they'll be observing soft opening prices at $7 per cocktail (with the exception of the "Chupabacra" pictured).
A full write-up to come in the near future, but based on first impressions, this brainchild of TJ Palmieri and the team at Crane Ramen is going to be a huge success. If you've been following my Instagram, you will have already seen some of the behind the scene peeks I've been giving. It's a beautiful bar with the cocktails to back it up. Get the Banana Daiquiri, you're going to want that! And remember, it's a soft opening, they're not a full speed yet, so be patient!
