Sterling's, the huge upcoming bar reportedly taking the liquor license from the Ups N Downs, tells Eater that it plans to open by early August of this summer. A rep says that the venue is shooting for an "old style steak house feel, with leather booths and a large center bar." The dining room will seat 120 with room for yet another 120 on what will have to be one heck of a patio, which will overlook Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. An outdoor bar with room for another 38 is where the staff will cook lobsters and clam bakes and shuck shellfish. Like Granary Tavern, Sterling's will be run by The Glynn Hospitality Group, which owns eight venues including The Purple Shamrock and The Black Rose. So you know it's going to be a party.
