As We See It

Opening: Scullery

Michael Cornthwaite and Future Restaurant Group’s latest endeavor will start slinging drinks and small plates on the first floor of the Ogden around April 1. The venue will also be connected to a black box theater.

Moving: One Man’s Trash

The bad news: OMT is ditching its gorgeous Main Street showroom for a space at 2960 Westwood Drive (units 22 & 23), where it will open two Saturdays each month and by appointment. The good news: They’re saying goodbye with a moving sale you won’t want to miss—March 7-9, noon-6 p.m., stunning furniture and decor up to 75 percent off.

Moving: Alios

Todd VonBastiaans’ showroom space is out of Container Park as of April 1 and heading back to its former digs at 1217 S. Main St., which it will share with the CAC for the next few months. That means you still have a few weeks to catch the final exhibit on Fremont Street, Valentine’s Day Mascular, featuring punching bag faces, Al Capone’s mirror ball and a Swarovski crystal reflective work.

Closed: Better Than New boutique

The Arts District rave-wear shop known for embellished bras and LED everything closed on February 11. A note on its Facebook page says it will be “coming back ‘better’ than ever.”

Moved: Brett Wesley Gallery

The Arts District developer’s landmark gallery is out of its glass-walled home at the corner of Charleston and Casino Center and into a new corner space at Art Square just a block away.

Moving: Patina Décor

OMT out, Patina in. The vintage furniture/décor/apparel outlet is heading across the street to 1300 S. Main St., where it will spread out and show off even more luscious design. Hip, hip, you know.
