Japanese Speakeasy Shuffle: Bohemian Is In, Mr. Jones Is Out


We hear that hidden Tokyo bar Bohemian has now soft-opened at its secret location. The timing couldnt be better, since another Japanese speakeasy (albeit a faux one), Lesly Bernards Mr. Jones, has shuttered after less than a year in business, according to Eater. Sad, since the place had its own thing going on and definitely a blow to Bernard, who lost chef Colin Alevras to Daniel Boulud while struggling to open three other spots Permanent Brunch, Village Tart, and La Otra. The places nowheresville 14th Street location was part of its charm, but we suspect it also kind of damned it.
