A soon-to-open South Boston hotel near the Broadway T stop will feature a rooftop restaurant run by a local hospitality group. Boston Nightlife Ventures — which operates Wink & Nod and Southern Kin Cookhouse — will open Six West in June at the Cambria Hotel, which is under construction at 6 West Broadway.
The project takes its name from the hotel’s address and will include a lobby lounge in addition to the rooftop deck, and there will be opportunities for live entertainment. The hotel is run by Meyer Jabara Hotels, which also runs Copley Square’s Courtyard by Marriott, with design from Rode Architects, a local firm that also designed the restaurants Southern Proper, SRV, and Coppersmith, among others. The hotel is set to open this spring, and it’s situated near the newly opened Fox & the Knife, along with more South Boston classics like Worden Hall, Amrheins, and Moonshine 152. Seaport’s convention center is a mile away.
Though Boston Nightlife Ventures recently closed its second (and last remaining) Griddler’s Burgers & Dogs location, as well as the Tap Trailhouse and Certified Meatball Company, the company has a few other projects in development. For one, it plans to expand Southern Kin Cookhouse from Somerville to a space next door to Wink & Nod in Boston’s South End, at 1 Appleton St., which was previously slated for Akinto, a Southeast Asian-inspired restaurant from chef Patrick Enage that did not come to pass. The group also aims to eventually open something in the Certified Meatball Company space at 429 West Broadway in South Boston.
