JAZZ CLUB PERMIT APPROVED BY PLANNING COMMISSION
SUISUN CITY - A jazz and entertainment club was approved Tuesday for the new Harbor Square development in the heart of Suisun City's Waterfront District.
The Planning Commission unanimously approved a permit that could pave the way for the first upscale live music and entertainment club to locate in the rejuvenated Waterfront District.
Proposed for a 3,500-square-foot ground floor space at the corner of Main Street and Solano Street, the new club is expected to complement both existing restaurants in the area and the new Cast Iron Grill & Bar, which will open later this summer in a neighboring Harbor Square suite.
"The proposed lounge is a compatible fit and will help enhance and promote bringing people downtown to enjoy the promenade, our restaurants and listen to some live jazz or similar type of music," according to the planning staff report to the commission.
Local businessman Demetrius Mance wants to open the upscale music club tentatively named Demitri’s Lounge by the Bay to provide an entertainment option not available anywhere else in the region. Though Suisun City has had successful outdoor concerts for years, the lounge will take that experience to the next level indoors and year-round. >>READ MORE>>
