The McCrory’s Building on Fourth Street just south of 4th Street Live! has been vacant for some time and a planned club for the location fell through a couple months ago. We’ve received word from a Broken Sidewalk tipster, though, that a new local restaurant is eyeing the space for an expansion.
The owner of Cafe 360 and Mantra Lounge in the Highlands on Bardstown Road and Bonnycastle Avenue is looking to open a new concept restaurant on Fourth Street, and is in reportedly in talks with several retail spots on the street including the McCrory’s property. Cafe 360 owner Sanjay Taxak opened the Bardstown Road restaurant and hookah lounge in 2005, but says his new concept will be completely different and sans hookah.
No deal has been signed for the McCrory’s space, but it’s looking like we might hear news of a new restaurant in the area soon. Cafe 360 is known for its affordable food, and with few local dining options in this stretch of downtown, an affordable dining spot could be just what Fourth Street needs. We’ll keep you posted.
