Ultra Lounge is open
Ultra Lounge opened last weekend at 628 N. Water St. The space formerly housed JC's Pub and Grill, Edgar's Calypso and Swank.
The nightclub and eatery is still evolving and, for now, is open Thursday through Sunday nights.
Co-owner David Hinton says the lounge will eventually be open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as well. Trey Brown also owns Ultra Lounge. This is the first business venture for the two men.
Ultra Lounge will serve small plates along with upscale bar food. It will also have DJs as well as live music and a regular Tuesday night poetry jam, jazz on Wednesday nights and neo-soul on Thursdays.
There is a happy hour on Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m. with '90s and early 2000s music. Eventually the happy hour will be offered more nights of the week.
"We have a lot of plans for the future. For now, we offer a unique lounge experience," says Hinton.
I plan to spend an evening at Ultra Lounge once it's up and running for a while. Stay tuned for a full article next month.
My bet is 3 months. That is about as long as anything can last at this location. Just turn it into a Verizon Store (or Boost Mobile) and get it over with.
