Deep Ellum - a new beer bar in Allston

Deep Elm is opening up any day now in the old Reel Bar spot in Allston.
Looks like many familiar faces from Bukowskis in Cambridge will be there. Aaron the GM, Max the bar mgr, and the guy that ran the kitchen at Buk's are running this place.
Deep Elm... Interesting coincidence since these guys have soem indie rock roots.
I'm pretty fired up to see how this goes. I've really enjoyed the beer specials Max has put on at the Cambridge Buk's location. The food there really improved when Josh arrived from New Orleans as well. He actually did a pretty decent Mardis Gras menu last year. Since food will be is as much a focus as the beer/cocktails at Deep Ellum I'm looking forward to seeing what his true cooking chops are like.
I know they installed a true cask engine and I got a look at their cocktail menu and there are some nice twists on some classics (updated Side Car sounded good but the specifics escape me). Max also has (INMO) pretty great taste in Bourbon and Tequila. He makes this "sangrita" to shoot with Tequila shots that is fantastic.
When I last ran into these guys they were not going to have live music.
