What the world needs now is more beer.
And more wings.
And more bars with magnolia trees growing out of them.
Yes, the world needs this new version of The Righteous Room, a second location of the beloved 17-year-old Ponce dive that you’ll employ for matters of alcohol and revelry, now soft-open in Brookhaven.
Don’t worry. The original isn’t going anywhere. It’s just got a kid brother now.
What Carried Over: The $6 High Life pitchers. The likelihood that you’ll swing by to catch a game but wind up staying for hours. The garlic-honey-glazed wings. The turkey melts. The jukebox. The... name.
What’s New: That giant magnolia tree growing out of the floor. The no-smoking-until-9pm policy. The presence of light (look up: that’s a skylight ceiling). The not being neighbors with an Urban Outfitters.
What’s to Come: The liquor license. Any day now, though. The good news: they decided to open for lunch in the meantime. And there’s a front patio at this one, too. Feel free to grab a burger out there while you wait for the beer to show up.
Tapping your fingers should help.
