The cowboy-inspired Viva Toro opened its first location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at 188 Berry Street between North 3rd and North 4th Streets in 2010, The Brooklyn Paper reported. It was the first business to have a mechanical bull for riders in the borough in decades, according to the publication. It wasn’t immediately clear if the new location will also have a mechanical bull.

For its new outpost, Viva Toro will assume a warehouse formerly occupied by the Global Plastic Company. Viva Toro plans to open its doors in five months, Akiva said.
