A new bar and lounge is slated to open in downtown Santa Rosa on Mendocino Ave in the former BarSpace/Stir space at 404 Mendocino Avenue. Though final details are still in the works, owners cautiously confirmed the news. Several new businesses have recently opened nearby, including Thai Time and Sift Dessert Bar. Another lounge and eatery, XXV is slated to open early this summer, adding to the late-night options. Cocktail-friendly restaurants Tex Wasabi’s and La Rosa Tequileria and Grill opened this spring.
