There's a new bar in town. Hinterlands Bar, located on Church Ave. near E. 8th Street, had its soft opening last night.

Hinterlands serves beer, wine, and cocktails. It'll also serve some food once the kitchen is up and running.

Open hours are 5:00 p.m. through 4:00 a.m. The grand opening party will take place this Thursday, June 23rd.

Co-owners Sharlene Frank Wellington and her husband Stuart Wellington are old hands at this type of venture. She owns Sharlene's Bar in Prospect Heights and was a manager at Commonwealth in Park Slope, where Stuart bartended until a week ago.

For the meantime, only cash can be accepted until the credit card system gets set up. [June 21st: The credit card system is up and running.]

Good luck, folks!
