Wow, very ironic considering what I just posted earlier today in the Flats development thread about there needing to be a piano bar in the warehouse district to diversify things (with regards to closure of Howl at the Moon).

There was a banner across the windows on the old 6th Street Pizzeria that said Coming Soon Piano Bar and something else. I missed the second part when I was driving by yesterday.

Oh yeah!  I saw that over the weekend, but completely forgot about it... no surprise there.  I'm thinking it just said Piano Bar and Lounge.

Yep, I saw your post. That's what made me remember seeing the sign.

The original owners of the property have taken back control along with some additional partners.  I know these people personally and consider them friends! They are relatively recent immigrants, but they have assimilated in the way we romanticize about immigration. They maintain their traditions and love for their "homeland", but they are strong American citizens that love and support their new country.  I wish we could attract millions of people like them to Cleveland.  Give them a try - maybe more than once.

I was wondering why Howl at the Moon wasn't just relocating since they were "so successful" for so long, that was odd to me

Warehouse District's Mercury Lounge to close; will reopen with new look and name
Published: Thursday, February 03, 2011, 12:45 PM     Updated: Thursday, February 03, 2011, 12:48 PM
 By John Petkovic, The Plain Dealer

The Warehouse District has been a district in transition, well, ever since it came to life in the late 1980s.

But Sunday night marks the end of one era and the beginning of another.

"We're going to be doing a complete renovation," says owner Sam Nassar. "New look, new theme, new vibe -- a completely different bar."

That's a bummer.  I met my wife there.  But at least the location will still remain a bar/lounge.

God, don't even joke about it.  I usually, not so much since the winter began, go there on Sundays for salsa.  Hope everything about it stays the same beyond the name.

Mercury has been going downhill for a while. I used to work there from the summer of 09 to the summer of 10. When I started working there bartenders would make around 200-250 a night, when I left we were making barely 80 a night. Really sad cause even before I was there I heard that was the place to be. Personally I think it was the change of ownership and their difference in ideas is what sent it over the edge. Hopefully it will be a great place to hang out that is unique to our city.

The 2 large canvas blade signs are up on the Bingham, they're not bad at all.
The lighting has been changed and I've seen it from deep vivid purples on some nights to cool blues on others. I get the sense that it's LED but I don;t know. It's different, looks great in my opinion.

I noticed the new lighting last weekend.  It goes through the entire color spectrum I believe.  I've seen it purple, blue, and red for sure.  Looks really sharp.  And by the look of the lights I would guess they're LED as well.

So evidently Bob Stark is planning on putting up an LED sign of some sort on the western wall of the building he owns he the southwest corner of West 3rd and St. Clair.  The sign will be 14 feet tall by 81 feet wide.

I own a unit in the Grand Arcade and received an e-mail detailing a light study and how light from the billboard may affect residents in the Grand Arcade:



Does anyone have more information about this?

So Bob Stark's change-the-world plans for the the Warehouse District has been reduced to an annoying, un-neighborly LED sign on his little building at the edge of a gigantic surface parking lot he doesn't even own?  My my.

While it may be likely that bad news comes out of the Warehouse District this summer, the Friday and Saturday nighttime trouble sections will be highly, highly patroled (I'm told). Evidence here as the north side of W. 6th gets shut off to all vehicular traffic in both directions this weekend.

To all the douche bags out there and their coddlers, if the party's not over...every attempt will be made to severely diminish it.

A coworker was just telling me that alot of the existing buildings have been demolished where the new casino is going to go.  Can anyone confirm?  Pictures would be even better?  I'm going to head down & check it out this weekend.  Need to see the Flats progress too

i'm pretty sure all demolitions in this general area are related to the new i-90 bridge and not the casino.  there aren't really many (any?) structures that need demolished for the new casino.

In any event, what does that have to do with the WHD?  It is not near the Innerbelt or the Casino.

Mixed use complex?  That sounds a heck of a lot cooler than the east side transit center.

A mixed-use complex that includes residential is very different the Tubbs Jones center. But this is being led by RTA, not by private developers adding RTA to the project. RTA is trying get developers interested in it, and they've not had a lot of success at many other station or transit center sites in the region (Brookpark, West Boulevard, EcoVillage, etc). So the fact that the mixed-use is coming on the back end of this tempers my enthusiasm a bit.

On the Landmarks Commission agenda for Thursday, June 9th (besides the Columbia Building of course)
is 1293 W 9th street as mentioned in the rendom developments thread will become a restaurant.  I believe the last remaining space that has not gone through a renovation on the street.   Tomo Restaurant and Lounge (before and after)
