Fresh off the opening of POP in Checker Bar, the team behind Grand Trunk Pub are working on their next major project: The Whisky Parlor. Located in the empty second and third floors of downtown's 608 Woodward Ave. building, The Whisky Parlor promises a deep bottle list with more than 100 whiskeys on the menu, as well as "laid back" setting.

"The contrast between the two floors is fun it really makes for an interesting rooms," manager Steven Reaume tells Eater. Dark ceilings and low hanging lights give the room a speakeasy feel; however, the owners have gone a step further by removing sections of the third floor to reveal exposed rafters and distressed, painted brick. While major construction is complete, The Whisky Parlor will receive overstuffed leather furniture, lighting, and shelving for all those bottles before they can call the job done.

In the meantime, guests can experience tastes of what's to come at special pop-ups in the unfinished bar. Reaume recently hosted NOODL in the space and has EKKO, an electronic dance event, booked this Saturday. Likewise, The Whisky Parlor is scheduled to host The Norway Project throughout the Movement Electronic Music Festival in May. Expect the bar to make its official debut in late May or early June and in the meantime check their Facebook page for updates.
