(Chop Suey 2? Maybe that one guy on Madison and 14th or wherever won't call to complain anymore.)

Finally! My friends and I didn't think it would last until Christmas. Maybe new management will get it right and start booking middle-tier national acts that the closing of the Crocodile left the game wide open for.

I would buy this club in a second and turn back into a 70's style dance club with disco and soul nights. Who wants to jump in with me?

i agree with Pat Lest Stache, maybe it could be a permenant home for Emerald City Soul Club. now where to get a half a mil....

i can understand poor booking, but poor marketing is hard to do; have a couple of drink special nights, have a presence in the stranger, paint seattle with flyers. ebb and flow i suppose.

@7, you're more talking advertising rather than marketing. And I do think they didn't know how to market the club with a clear vision of what it was going to be. First they said it would book a wide variety of music, then they billed it as a Rock Club... at least they are openly admitting they didn't have the experience and made mistakes. It's a great space for an experienced club manager and booker.

A lack of experience may be why the King Cobra has strip club lighting, an excessive number of meatheads working the door/security, and a pronounced lack of urinals. It is not an enjoyable night club.
