Earlier this year, Michael Olsen tried to open another version of Hush, the nightclub he used to have in the Larimer Square spot now occupied by Wicked Garden, but Cherry Creek residents lined up in opposition to his plans to put a club in the basement of 250 Steele Street.
But Olsen isn't giving up on the club, or the neighborhood: Today, he was at the Department of Excise and Licenses for a hearing on his tavern and dance cabaret license application for Cherry, which he hopes to put in the space at 231 Milwaukee Street.
Most recently, this address was home to Bar Luxe. Before that, it was the Milwaukee Grill; before that, it was the Baywolf.

And it looks like Olsen might get his wish to turn the long-empty space into Cherry. This round, there was no opposition present at the hearing -- and more than 90 percent of the signatures were in favor of the club.
Olsen promises that it will be geared toward 30 to 50-somethings, not the younger crowds that favor LoDo.
