North Gulch lands live music spot

Anthem could open on New Year's Eve

Construction is now underway on the interior of a North Gulch building to be home to live music venue Anthem, which will be located at 125 12th Ave. N. across from 12th & Porter.

A soft opening is projected for New Year’s Eve.

“The architectural renderings have gone through several evolutions as we explored all the opportunities to maximize the space while still making it feel cozy,” Austin Ratliff of The Status Group, co-owner of Anthem with London Parfitt, said in a release. “And now that we are under construction, I can’t wait to see the final results of our efforts.”

Anthem will include a live music space for performers to entertain 1,000 attendees. The space is getting a new mezzanine level with a 400-capacity VIP room that runs the length of the building and overlooks the main floor. In addition, a boutique dive bar known as Revelry will offer an intimate, entertaining experience.

The new-look space, which was last home to a night club Mai, will also include a full kitchen and a 3,000-square-foot staging/green room for artists and their entourages.
