Mather’s Social Gathering (Website), the new library/speakeasy/watering hole we wrote about in January, will soft-open on Friday, May 12 at 9 p.m.

The new venue is an effort by Team Market Group, the people behind Red Mug Diner, and is located on the third floor of the same building that houses Joysticks Arcade Lounge [GMap].

The new venue showcases a variety of historic photographs and antiques from the private collection of co-owner, Romi Mawardi, most of which are also available for purchase. Located at the back of the main lounge area you’ll also find a small retail shop featuring candies, books, and a variety of small knick-knacks. Mawardi told us that they plan to expand the retail offerings throughout the coming months.

Small bites are available for purchase, as shown in the photo below, though some prices will change prior to the opening.

The space will only be open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. but stay tuned to their Instagram and Facebook pages for special events and expanding hours this summer.
