Babe Cave is coming back and this time, the style of the popular cocktail bar is all grown up.

Catch up quick: The women-designed bar closed in late 2022 following disputes with nearby businesses.

What's happening: Now owner Robbie McNair-Guzman will open a new location in LoSo. McNair-Guzman and brand manager Morgan Robinson tell Axios the new space will still be female-focused, but it'll no longer have its fully pink aesthetic.

  • "We're still darling — just a little more mature," McNair-Guzman says.

The vibe: At 5,700 square feet, the new spot is smaller than the old one but expected to offer more installations, including a new speakeasy-styled content studio called "No Boys Allowed."

  • Podcast and lighting equipment will be provided in the studio. It's available to book online at least 36 hours in advance.
  • They'll also offer more events like cocktail classes and daily floral design workshops.

The menu: Expect nine cocktails in the same whimsical glassware as the original spot, plus small bites and sweet treats including a dessert tower.

  • Drinks will start at $16 and will be named after iconic women in various industries.
  • For example, their chocolate old fashioned is called CoCo Chanel.

What's next: Babe Cave will open in early March. Additional details, including the exact address, will be released at a later date.

  • "The girlies are going to be super excited to see how Babe Cave evolved," Robinson says.
