Purbird Prepares to Take Flight in Old Helios Space
The space that once housed Helios has been under construction for well over a year. Recently, signage proclaiming it "Purbird" went up.
The last we heard about the space, the owners of Helios were planning a beer bar on the premises. It's unclear whether they are still proprietors of the establishment, but a trademark application for Purbird was made back in May. The application states it will offer "restaurant, café, and bar services, including sit-down service of food and drink, take-out restaurant services, and delivery services." Considering the yoga studio upstairs, sounds like just the spot for a post-meditation drink.
