Since Spike’s Junkyard Dogs at 217 Elm St. in David Square in Somerville closed earlier this
month, folks at The Painted Burro will soon be getting the space ready for the
Burro Bar. The casual concept will focus on craft cocktails and a wide variety of
tequilas and beers, with 20 craft beers on tap and in bottles. Dinner will be served nightly, with the menu provided by The Painted Burro. On Saturday and Sunday, it will serve lunch, a menu of Mexican
sandwiches, tortas and tacos. Bingo, darts and a jukebox are all part of the plan to make this joint happening.
Renovations will likely start before
the holidays, according to a Painted Burro spokesperson. The bar is slated to open
in early 2013. By the way, other Spike's Junkyard Dogs locales are still open.
