Francois Firmin, who ran the Congress Street lounge for 10 years, hopes to open a similar lounge at 174 Lincoln St.
The Boston Licensing Board decides later today whether to let Firmin spend $610,000 to buy the liquor license and other assets of District at the same location.
At a hearing today, Firmin and his attorney, George Heos, said Savvor would be geared to customers in their early 30s to mid 50s seeking Southern food and small plates in a lounge atmosphere. Firmin said he would like to eventually add dancing, but would hold off an application for that for at least six months, to show the community he'll be a good neighbor.
