Congress Park meeting tonight on Tavern project

The Tavern Hospitality Group is ready to take over the space in the Lowenstein project at 2510 East Colfax Avenue that was previously occupied by Neighborhood Flix, where it plans to open an event center (think the Soiled Dove in Lowry) and a Tavern (think Wash Park, Uptown, etc). But first, it will take on opponents in the Congress Park neighborhood.

Congress Park Neighbors will be meeting at 7 p.m. today to discuss the Tavern's application to switch the former Flix liquor license to an all-ages, dance cabaret license. And yes, that's during the Broncos game -- but the opponents published their game plan more than a month ago at www.nodancecabaret.com, where its garnered precisely five comments. and since the site appeared, THG's Frank Schultz has amended his application with the city to reduce capacity far below his early guestimate of 790; current plans call for an events center that would hold a maximum of 450.

Other neighborhood groups, who met with Schultz back in September, are looking at the THG plan a great deal more favorably -- as are the tenants inside the Lowenstein, who are eager for the customers that the project could bring to the project.

The city's liquor license hearing is set for 6 p.m. Monday, November 23 at the Wellington E. Webb Building.
