Mike Huggins and Lenka Juchelkova are opening Tatarian, a diminutive 900-square-foot spot at 4024 N. Tennyson Street, BusinessDen reported. The husband and wife team have expanded their business reach in the last few years from their original venture, the Arvada Tavern, to Union Lodge 1 in Downtown in 2015 then Kline Beer Hall in 2016 back in Arvada. Each new venture seems to have a clear mission, whether that is a 1940s-style cocktail bar or a European-inspired beer and sausage spot.
Their upcoming venture, set to open by the end of the summer in the booming Berkeley ‘hood, is housed in a former beauty salon where a remodel has yet to begin. Tatarian will be a contemporary cocktail bar ran by the current assistant manager from the Arvada Tavern. Team members from Union Lodge will help shape the beverage menu. Huggins and Juchelkova were not planning on making a mark on Tennyson but the right opportunity presented itself and they decided to jump in!
