Not ground-breaking news, since we mentioned it back in March
, but Boxing Cat Brewery's upscale Xintiandi location Cobra Lily
has shut its doors and is turning itself into a "premium" Boxing Cat Brewery flagship. Cobra Lily, which opened up in November 2016, went for a kind of Pan-Asian take on crafty beer food
and walls plastered with the eponymous mascot, but it just "wasn't Boxing Cat Brewery," they said. Which is true: Cobra Lily is neither a boxer, nor a cat. It's all part of BCB refocusing on what they're all about. In this case, it's going to be a fancy beergarden, serving aged steak, bar grub, fancy beertails and critically, nachos. Probably some beer? Estimated July opening.
