Thanks for all the feedback ... as a long time TD member, it's interesting to see something that I am actually involved with come to life and be a topic.
For the record ....
We aren't try to be anything but an additional entertainment option for BR that is not overly corporate or cheesy ..i mentioned the other establishments in the Dig Article because those are the kind of places I like to go to when i am working in BR and those venues have a respectable music calendar and good atmosphere. The plan is to have an interesting mix of local and national talent in an intimate setting. Think Circle Bar, Blue Moon in Laffy, etc. Though our capacity is 225 inside. We will book early weekday shows, function as a non-smoking environment inside, utilize our large patio and book a diverse calendar.
The name has received a lot of positive feedback especially when the logo is incorporated. The logo can be seen on the FB page. I get it's not for everyone, but at the end of the day it tells a story without being obvious like Levee or River Bar.
And understand we aren't a craft beer bar, but we plan on having a thought out selection of wine and beer. The actual bar area is not huge, so I was lucky to cram a 6 tap cooler there in the first place. NOLA doesn't come in the smaller kegs BTW or it would be in there.
This whole thing basically came together in 6 weeks from design to open and there is a lot of work to do, but hopefully it accomplishes what i set out to do: add something to the local scene.
