FORT WAYNE -

Fort Wayne cocktail lounge HT2 has announced plans to expand its footprint. Plans call for an additional 2,200 square feet for more seating, private event space, and eventual outdoor seating. The expansion comes after the business nearly doubled its revenue since opening in May 2015.

The cocktail lounge opened shortly after Hotel Tango Artisan Distillery opened its doors in Indianapolis in 2014. The lounge took its name from the Hotel Tango line of spirits used in all of their cocktail recipes. 

"We are so appreciative of the continued community support and are ready to expand, in order to meet growing needs and demands of the market, " said Jen Ladig, HT2 co-owner. "This space will allow us the ability to expand our offerings, specifically for private events and indoor/outdoor seating. We can't wait to play host to even more residents in the Fort Wayne area and introduce them to Hotel Tango artisan spirits."

The new event space and outdoor renovations will be completed to allow for bookings beginning November 1. Phase two of the work will include the outdoor seating area and will be ready to go in the spring of 2019. 

Financial details of the project are not being disclosed, however HT2 says several full-time and part-time jobs will be created, though a specific number will be determined closer to the opening date.
