Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Commonwealth Ultra Lounge coming soon to Hillcrest

Remember the slanted-roof building in Hillcrest that last was the location of the old Range, before it moved across the street and became part of 1202? Well, the space is about to get a new occupant.

Local entrepreneur Joseph Price recently announced that his new establishment, the Commonwealth Ultra Lounge, will be opening soon, with a target date of Aug. 16.

I talked to Joe the other day, and it sounds like it’s coming together nicely.

“It will be an ultra-lounge with unique eats and drinks, much needed in Hillcrest area. The building was just deemed an historical landmark. The business will be owner owned and operated by myself Joseph Price, and business partners Aly Weaver and Dave Morai. For ambiance, we’re aiming for mid-century with a modern flair.”

On the décor, he goes on to add: “The building has received a complete renovation from floor to ceiling. High end marble countertops and crystal chandeliers will be part of the build out, designed completely by the owners.”

“I am very excited for this venture and know and promise this venue will succeed.”
