Listening Room Cafe owner Chris Blair says he will reopen his venture in the former Luau Louie's Hula Hut building at Second Avenue South and Molloy Street. Workers are renovating the space, which should be ready for business before the end of the year, and Blair wants to build out his brand soon after.
The new location will offer nightly shows, additional parking, and a fully renovated stage and bar. Upon reopening, Blair also plans to launch additional business components for the brand, which will include a publishing company division (Emerge Nashville) and a full service video and audio recording division.
Parmenter Realty, the owner of the Nashville City Center, has teamed up with Gresham Smith & Partners and R.C. Mathews Contractor to start work on the 475-space underground parking garage adjacent to the downtown office tower. Work on the five-story project is expected to wrap up late next year. The street-level plaza near Sixth Avenue North and Union Street also will look a little different by then.
