In Our Neighborhood

Posted by on September 16 at 10:48 AM

Pike/Pine updates:
This neighborhood of coffee shops, bars, auto dealerships, boutiques, and salons is about to welcome… another fistful of the same. 517 E Pike, a lovely airy space which was a Halloween superstore this time last year and has been vacant since, is becoming an auto showroom. The former auto-repair shop that abuts the Eagle will soon be home to Victrola’s coffee roasting operations. The empty disco at 916 E Pike (once Spintron) has a liquor license application notice on the door bearing the cringe-inducing name “Bad Boys Club.” And the husk of the Bad JuJu (1518 11th Ave) is being transformed into Barbie’s, a lounge named after the owner who’s also a partner in Manray.
