Instant King Street hotspot Republic Reign is about to expand into the great outdoors. The new lounge will be debuting its patio around April 19-20, reports City Paper. Back in those last days of Chai's Lounge, the bar that preceded RR, it seemed like the spacious patio was a bigger draw than the interior. Republic Reign had the velvet ropes up and lines outside within their first week, so the garden will likely draw the crowds as well.
And, speaking of new additions to the al fresco dining scene on Upper King, Jeremiah Bacon's The Macintosh opened up a patio with a fire pit somewhat recently.
