MAN CAVE

Southie’s Capo owns your Grandpa’s base­ment

Where Boston - - INSIDER -

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.
