229 North Virginia - The Horseshoe Building may be getting a makeover! I see a permit for a restaurant remodel and facade remodel, and an MPE, though not sure what that means. Looks like the restaurant may be called Masque. How mysterious!
211 North Virginia Street - Virginia Street Brewhouse - Also opening on Virginia Street in September, will be Virginia Street Brewhouse. Dubbed as a 'multi-use speakeasy and nightlife venue' with the largest selection of craft beer on tap and bottled. On the first floor will be the main bar area and includes a dance floor, stage area for bands, gaming, food and pool tables. On the second floor is 'The Denim Lounge', tapping into the building's history as a jean factory.
190 California Avenue - Monaciello - This is the building my favorite yoga spot is in, Temple Yoga, upstairs, so I am guessing a new restauarant is going in where Blue Moon Pizza used to be. They're applying for an alcohol license. From their Facebook Page, it looks like pizza and pasta. I love pasta! Here's a construction pic below.
772 South Virginia Street - Whispering Vine Midtown - Whispering Vine is applying for a packaged liquor license which means they should be opening soon!
32 Cheney Street - Amari - A new bar is applying for a new alcohol bar license in the next city council meeting. From the owners of Death & Taxes and Midtown Eats, this bar will help with the overflow of Death & Taxes but be a completely different concept and menu. This is Nameless Coffee's old locale.
50 South Virginia Street - Seven Troughs Speakeasy - Opening in the Basement soon in the historic former post office downtown, is applying for their alcohol license.
