{image1} Swig, a new Downtown restaurant, is opening soon and will replace what was 1225 Water Street’s Malibu Beach Club, The Skyy Lounge and Luke’s on Water Sports Bar & Grill at 1227 N. Water St. Promotional advertisements for Swig promise it’ll put a fresh spin on the Water Street strip.

And although owner Joe Sorge declined to provide details about the new venture, learned that a private grand opening party for Swig will be held Wednesday, Jan. 26.
