There’s a storm cloud hovering over Westport and it’s poised to break loose this weekend…
The bar formerly known as Stanford & Sons, more recently Johnny Dare’s, plans to reopen Friday or Saturday as the Hell Bar Rock Lounge. The new biker bar’s sign went up yesterday with a pair of trident-packing, nude, silhouetted devil hotties.
Fancy that, a biker rock bar, conveniently located right next door to urban dance club America’s Pub.
Westport hasn’t had this much fun since it blasted country & western at the crowds of African American kids it was trying to rid itself of back in the 1990s. Most of Hell Bar’s business neighbors have reportedly signed off on its petition for motorcycle parking out front along Westport Road, and the club awaits approval from the city, sources say.
The last club to go into Westport’s historic Jim Bridger Building – Karma – started out as a rock club like Johnny Dare’s but ended up going with the flow as an urban club before folding recently.
And with summer just around the corner, it should make for an entertaining business mix.
