Kris Wessel's A.I.R. near Lincoln Road closing after less than 2 months

A.I.R (Artist In Residence)., the boozy brainchild of designer Jeff Vaughan, chef / restaurateur Kris Wessel and partner Roman Cherstvov, is closing. The space next to Oolite opened Aug. 1, 2014 as an Art and Music bar near Lincoln Road (1661 Pennsylvania Ave.).

“AIR is closing and will no longer be operated and directed by Kris Wessel, Designer Jeff Vaughan and the Oolite Restaurant group,” reads a statement.

New management is said to be developing a different concept.
