Hug Lounge is now open at 949 Bonifant St., the former location of Pennyworth Thrift Shop, according to the company’s website.
The menu largely consists of Ethiopian cuisine, with breakfast offered along with smoothies and several fish dishes.
The restaurant/lounge plans to open every day at 10 a.m. and close at 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, and open until 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights. It has seating for 35 people, according to its application for a liquor license.
The lounge also will host special events, such as today’s All White Affair #DayLit Day Party, which is scheduled for 4–10 p.m. with food, drinks and hookahs.
