LORETTA'S LAST CALL
FROM NASHVILLE TO LANDSDOWNE
Loretta's Last Call is the latest night spot in the Lyon’s group line-up. Country music has spread from the South to the Northeast. It is everywhere. Grab your boots and get to steppin’ to Loretta’s Last Call, Boston’s ONLY Country Bar and Restaurant located across from Fenway Park – offering southern cuisine and authentic country music. So who’s Loretta? She is actually a 1966 Gibson guitar!
WORKING OFF THE SAME SHEET OF MUSIC
The interior, with its vintage jukebox, wagon wheel chandeliers, and Dolly Parton vinyl canvassing the walls, was conceived by Stephen Martyak of Studio Tyak, the same designer behind Boston Chops and The Sinclair. Stephen called on Upland Architects again as his go-to A/E firm that would bring it to life. Taking his ideas and adding the backbeat that would be needed for permitting and construction. Like a good band, there were no creative differences, only good collaboration making sweet music.
KNOWING THE SONG BEFORE YOU PLAY
Like all foodservice fit-ups, the existing conditions of the space can make or break the budget. Before any project starts, and ideally before any lease is signed, due diligence must be done. What is the electrical service? Is there an existing grease trap? What city permissions exist or are needed for the outdoor dining plans? These are just a sample of checklist questions that are asked…and depending on the answers, help shape timelines and budgets well in advance playing the first note!
