Photo Tour of Strangelove’s

Strange Love tops the bar.

Strangelove’s is set to open tomorrow, April 23rd. Yesterday we were invited to check out the two-floored space from the team that has brought us Memphis Taproom, Local 44 and Resurrection Ale House. The new space is their most ambitious yet, with 22-taps and a menu that will appeal to vegans and meat eaters alike. Brendan Hartranft promises a beer list that will always be worth a trip and judging by what was coming out of chef Paul Martin’s kitchen, there will be worthwhile food to pair with those beers. We tried the oh-so-buttery O. Redenbacher’s chili dusted popcorn and rueben croquettes that featured a Russian dressing that was distractingly good. We also downed a roasted turkey grinder with muffaletta spread that truly satisfied and finished it off with a lemon icebox cream pie, that we kept eating despite being way too full.

The grand opening kicks off at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, with complementary bites from the menu and a really impressive opening tap list.
