Is this the next bar on Rainey Street?
Yes, it is. 86 Rainey Street will become “The Blackheart” bar. The above photo of their TABC permit application indicates a request for mixed beverage with late hour service.
The architecture will be handled by Dick Clark – which bodes well for the design.
Update: interestingly, just 30 minutes after this post went live, the owner of the Facebook page removed the inspired description of “Nola bordello” and all of the Facebook comments (including their fan’s discussion of chainsaws and arborists). Hope that wasn’t because of us. Easy fellas, we’re friendly here. Just intrigued neighbors. 😉
