The seemingly always rotating lot where Corner’s Tavern and Bing Crosby’s have been is getting another new tenant. This time, it will be a concept called Broadway Club. From what I understand, it will be a music, dinner, and drinks club.
One thing I’m not sure about is how they will justify charging $20 or more to see a cover band, when you can get a similar musical experience for $5 at Dan’s (or for free some nights in Broadway Plaza!)? On the surface, it doesn’t seem worth it to me.
They will cater to events or corporate rental space, which could work. Maybe if it becomes a fun place to meet people like Bing Crosby’s was, they will make something out of it. We will see! I personally don’t really want to visit and pay that much for a cover band, but I’ll see how it all plays out. I would enjoy upcoming artists – maybe somebody like Alejandro from last year’s runner-up on American Idol.
What are your thoughts? Where is your go-to place for music downtown? Do you see yourself paying extra for a bigger, newer space to enjoy a band? Have you been? Would love your feedback.
