Casselman's Bar & Venue opened this past weekend at 2620 Walnut Street, in the space where Shakespeare's Pub, once an institution in the Platte Valley, lasted less than a year. Maybe that's why owner Matt Casselman wants to refer to the neighborhood as "NoDo." But he could soon rake in plenty of the stuff, if this past weekend's grand opening is any indication. He's put a thousand-person concert hall in the space, and plans to host comedy and live music shows.
And there will soon be more action in this area just north of LoDo, since Otto's Grill is slated to open this weekend at 2200 Market, in the former home of Brix.
