First there was Foundation. In a few short weeks Ashley Christensen will bring us Fox.
In October, Matt Bettinger, one of the bartenders behind some of Raleigh's finest handcrafted cocktails at Foundation, will open Coco's in the Glenwood South entertainment district.
Coco's will be located on the bottom floor of 407 Glenwood Avenue South in the space previously occupied by Trim Nightclub.
Matt will open with a menu of 8 signature cocktails, all built by himself, and 10 classics.
I must admit, when I first spoke with Matt I was a bit caught off guard that he would bring this type of concept to a part of town typically reserved for nightclubs. Then again, with the addition of Joel Lane's and a few more bar-like concepts on the way, Matt may be just way ahead of the curve.
Either way, judging from my previous experience with Matt's concoctions at Foundation this should be nothing short of amazing.
