Description

Westword's Description

The Matchbox's name was inspired partly by a fire that gutted the space in 2009, and partly by the fact that it's long and narrow like a matchbox. Sudhir Kudva, who also owns the Squire Lounge, partnered up with two other folks and overhauled the former Orange Cat Studios, demolished the back of the building to make way for a large patio, put in new bathrooms and installed a garage door in the front. While the place has been updated considerably, it still retains some of the Orange Cat's charm, like the exposed brick on the south wall. With three live-music venues within a block, the Matchbox focuses more on being a neighborhood watering hole than on bringing in live entertainment. There are a number of local beers on tap and a decent selection of cocktails, as well.
