Downtown Update

Here's a quick roundup of downtown club news.  First of all, the venue at the prime corner of Orange Avenue and Central Blvd, will be reopening soon with the name of Ono Nightclub.  It most recently operated a 1 South Nightclub and before that, Bar 1 Nightclub.  They don't seem to want to give up on references to the number 1.  Owned by TMG, a company that also owns Tier, Native Social Bar, Backroom and Club 23.  Let's see how they differentiate themselves.
Avenue Gastropub is the name of the new place of business where Senso Supperclub was located and previous to that, Zinc Bar.  I did not have time to explore but there did appear to be a small DJ booth at the far rear with 80's & 90's being played.  The booth was not up high like it was during it's Senso/Zinc Bar days where I saw Ferry Corsten (NL) play in here once.  It looks like the focus now will be food and sports.
We previously reported on Don Jefe's Tequila Parlour opening on Church Street in the former home of long-running nightclub Antigua.  A nice-redo has been completed and they do have a DJ working the room.  But like so many others, they're going with a sports bar vibe.
Over at The Beacham there is advertising for AAHZ Legacy, the final installment ever of the AAHZ Reunion series of concerts. Taking place the night of July 3rd, that's just 3 weeks away!  Advance tickets can be purchased here.  Advance purchasers get a double CD to overcome the service charges.
