Southie’s Capo owns your Grandpa’s basement
ostalgia and design work in strange but often delightful ways. What at first seems very cool will, inevitably, draw the scorn of eagle-eyed trend-watchers at some later time, only to be resurrected to its former glory when the wheel of aesthetic grooviness comes full circle. And so it continues. Yes, wood paneling does cover the walls at South Boston’s latest late-night hangout and, in the grand scheme of things, it feels just right. The Supper Club at Capo, aka the downstairs of Capo Restaurant, has doubled down on the throwback decor with 1 70s-style owl figurine lamps, framed rug-hook art and other nostalgic elements you might find in your grandparents# basement rec room or at a yard sale. There#s even a micro fridge filled with PB( for self-service) now that*s the kind of detail that never goes out of fashion. The main attraction is, of course, live music Thursday to Saturday nights. 443 W. Broadway, 617.993.8080.
