New Restaurant Opening in the Former Mercury Lounge Space

••• The iconic Mercury Lounge space in Goleta has a new tenant: Centennial Beer Hall, from former Lucky Penny chef Ron Batdorf. According to commercial real estate agent Caitlin Hensel, “the new concept will feature an expansive beer selection, wine, and live music (once that’s a thing again, hopefully soon).”

••• And next door, Old Town Coffee has expanded both inside and out.

••• At some point—possibly long ago—Revolver started opening in time for lunch (i.e., at noon), Wednesday through Sunday. Good news for those of us who’ve been wanting to try the square slices….

••• Sanders & Sons Gelato‘s Ojai shop has opened.

••• From Edible Santa Barbara: “The 38th Annual Santa Barbara Vintners Spring Weekend originally scheduled for May 1, 2021, has been postponed” till May 2022.

••• Secret Bao is starting a “secret Sunday supper series.” Sign up for the email list on the restaurant’s website.

••• An outpost of the Jersey Mike’s sandwich chain is coming to Fairview Center—i.e., the one with Bed Bath & Beyond, Miner’s Ace, and Sprouts—says commercial real estate agent Caitlin Hensel.
