In the ever changing landscape of Southie, it’s always good to keep abreast the new things happening in our local business community.  Remember is important to support small business so get out there and spend some money! 

Worden Hall is hoping to open its doors this summer at 22 West Broadway.  The new restaurant is owned and operated by Dylan Welsh, owner of Five Horses Taverns in Davis Square and the South End promises to be wildly popular.  Worden Hall recently obtained a liquor license from The Patriot (formerly the Blackthorn.  The Patriot is now closed.  No word to what will be replacing it. 

Southie runs on Dunkins! Dunkin Donuts on L Street is open for business complete with a walk up window on L Street.  

K&8th Butcher Shop located at well….K&8th is now selling wine and beer which makes perfect sense.  

Get juicing! The Urban Art Bar is now the home of The Juice Box during the day and a perfect place to stop for coffee, grab and go salads and of course, juice and smoothies.  The Juice Box also has another location at 359 West Broadway.  

Local burgers chain B.Good will be opening up shop by the end of the summer in the Vertex building at 50 Northern Avenue.  B.Good will be serving up burgers and fries, smoothies, salads, and grain bowls.

Do we really need another one? Unfortunately, JP Licks will not be going into the space on East Broadway that once housed Flood Square Hardware.  We are disappointed to hear that a 7/11 will take over that space in June.  Honestly?  Do we need another 7/11? 

Right next store, Wears +Wares – a small accessories/home/clothing shop hopes to be open in June.  

Hair raising!  Davis Hairdressing will open a new location at 341 West Broadway.  This will be the second location for salon owners, Mary and Ken Davis.  The Davis’ opened their first salon in Newton Highlands in 1991.  So Southie, yet another location to get your hair looking gorgeous!  

Pins and needles.  Friend Acupuncture is open for business at South Boston Yoga – 36 West Broadway.  Acupuncturist Abby Friend is offering Abby is offering her initial acupuncture consultation and treatment for just $75 through June 15th (normally $100) as a special to South Boston residents!  For more information visit: http://www.friendacupuncture.com

Bloom and grow!  Sunny Florists is now opened at 9 West Broadway for all your floral needs.  

Things are moving and grooving on the construction of Coppersmith.  The much anticipated restaurant is moving forward with renovations at 40 West Third Street and hopes to open in June.  This future hot spot will feature farm-to-table, an outdoor patio, a rooftop garden, and food trucks.

6th Gear – the old Wolfie’s/Sauce at the corner of L and East Fourth was rumored to be opening this winter but hasn’t yet.  The father and daughter owned spot seems to have come to a complete stand still.  6th Gear will feature classic comfort food, a 10 seat bar with a 1am close.  Although no opening date has been announced, new paper is covering the windows so maybe a big reveal is in the works soon!

Where’s the beef? Apparently down the Southie waterfront.  According to Boston Eater, Ocean Prime is hoping to open next winter at 100 Pier 4.  This high-end national chain will join the likes of Morton’s and Del Frisco’s and will serve steak and seafood in a “supper club” atmosphere.  Steaks start at $40.  Start saving, Southie!

Nothing new to report for the much talked about space at L and East Broadway.  No word yet what will occupy the newly constructed buildings.

    I was hoping a decent bakery would open in Flood Sq. Joseph's has been going down hill for years. The pastries are gross and sit out for days.

    Nothing will be announced for the first floor establishment until the 2 top floor condos are sold. Who wants to buy above a bar or restaurant?
