Former Trocaderos space bought by Crave owners
Kaskaid hospitality group seems intent on starting off their July with a lot of new ventures. Last week we reported the company, who owns the Crave restaurants as well as Union, Uptown Urban Eatery, and Figlio 2.0, may add a new concept restaurant in the former Old Chicago space in Uptown. Kaskaid partner Kam Talebi also confirmed with the Star Tribune that the company reached an agreement to buy the site of the former Trocaderos night club in the ever-expanding North Loop neighborhood.
Though many were excited by the prospect of another North Loop brewery when Duluth-based Fitger's announced plans to transform the space into another outpost of their popular North Shore brewpub (which they subsequently quickly scrapped ), Talebi says he sees a much greater demand for event space. The forthcoming Muse Event Center will take advantage of the multi-tiered interior, dramatic high ceilings, and hip location to create beautiful rentable space for weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and corporate and other private events.
