A new lounge and restaurant is coming along right on the Downtown/University Heights border. 304 University Avenue, formerly home to Skipper’s Plane Street Pub, was sold in December last year to RBH Market Street West, a subsidiary of the locally-based RBH Group. Since then, the ground floor pub has undergone a renovation.

A new lounge and restaurant is coming along right on the Downtown/University Heights border. 304 University Avenue, formerly home to Skipper’s Plane Street Pub, was sold in December last year to RBH Market Street West, a subsidiary of the locally-based RBH Group. Since then, the ground floor pub has undergone a renovation.

The space is being turned into Suite 304 Bar and Lounge, which will feature a menu that leans towards Italian style. A walk past the site shows that construction is humming right along and owner Sam Siino says the restaurant expects to open their doors for food on March 20th and hopes to have their liquor license by April 1st.
