    This came across my Twitter feed today. It’s located where The Garage used to be on 147 W Vine St

    But it looks like their menu is decent and they have a lot of acts coming up

    Could this be a revive of the “off park st” night club scene?

    I subtract points from their website for still having the Word Press logo as their Favicon and the annoying autoplay music.

    TECHNO CHICKEN WINGS IN YOUR FACE!

    I didn’t realize Garage Bar shut down. I kinda thought that place was “interesting.” It’s been at least a year since I was there but every time I did it was kinda fun. Also, Paul Van Dyke? Wow

    They lose points for their favicon, but not for the “Banner Placeholder” header?

    Not only did the Garage shut down, there was actually another place there in between Garage and Dahlia – Bucks and Pucks (they did little beyond change all of the signing).

    I believe that Bucks and Pucks was only open about 3 weeks.

    a reference to Techno Viking makes any thread better.

    and yes PVD is the only one of those acts I’ve heard of. But that’s not a surprise.

    Felt like it was small in there. Having bigger acts in there seems like it would be packed. Should have tried the old lodge Bar.

    Drove by it last night. It was dark and I went by quick but it looked plain white with black trim and the windows were papered off? Kind of looked like a strip club. Not judging, just a quick first impression. I honestly don’t think this building or the BrickYard are going to last beyond another couple of years anyway. That land is just too valuable.

    I don’t think nightclubs are ever anything you can judge from the outside. ;)

    The concepts in the review confuse me a bit.

    Dahlia wishes to become a venue in which live music is performed, dancing encouraged, and sports are rejoiced from large flat screens.

    So they kept all the big flat screens from Garage/Bucks & Pucks for sports…but want live music…and a more mature vibe…and dancing?

    Are they competing with the dance floors at Cantina & Callahan’s? Or are they trying to attract less drunk sports fans from Brothers and R Bar? The whole concept just doesn’t seem to go together for the space they have, but what do I know.

    Everything about that website is horrible. This place looks like the biggest nightmare I can imagine. I am physically uncomfortable. Someone send help.

    You’re in luck! Patronage is not mandatory! ;)

    Hopefully they utilize tv screens like Double Happiness does, showing fun and weird videos and the like, if there’s dancing going on.
