The team has been very mum on the details surrounding Hard Water (Pier 3), the latest bar project from the Charles Phan empire, but today we received word of an opening event coming up next week, meaning that the public opening should be happening on or around March 8 or 9. What we do know: It's not Asian but in fact is New Orleans-themed; it's kind of tiny (1,300 square feet); the design is by Olle Lundberg and has something to do with a canoe; and there will be a Big Easy-inspired cocktail menu from Slanted Door bar star Erik Adkins, from which the food will be inspired. We'll update you tomorrow with further details, as we gather them. [Earlier] Update: The official public opening is on March 14, though we're unclear if there could be soft-opening nights before that. See some photos and the menu here.
