The Third Rail, a New Bar From Range’s Phil West and Jeff Lyon, Coming to Dogpatch

One of Lyon's brighter creations from recent years: The Spring Fling, featuring gin, lime, and tarragon-mint syrup.

Over the long weekend the Scoop caught a liquor license going in for something called The Third Rail, a new bar project from Range chef-owner Phil West and longtime bar manager Jeff Lyon. It's described as a cocktail bar, though West won't talk about the details just yet, and it's moving into the space that's currently home to Retox at 20th and Third. Lyon, and before him Brooke Arthur, has maintained a highly regarded bar program at Range over the past few years, often highlighting seasonal fruit and unusual house-made syrups. Look for The Third Rail to open sometime next year. [Scoop]
