The Aftermath of the SUP Wipeout

There has been a lot of rezoning going on in the Deep Ellum / Fair Park areas. Bars / Clubs are now required to apply for a Special Use Permit to keep their doors open. Once they file their paperwork they go before a committee who then decides whether or not to grant them this permit. Basically if your establishment hasn’t had any “incidents” or received a lot of complaints then you are good to go. This is kind of subjective, and has led to the denial of permits for places such as Tomcats, Club One and Monkey Bar.

My question is what will go in the place of these venues? The property owners pushed to put the SUP into play, but what are their intentions once this first round has gone through the wash?

Empty buildings aren’t much better than an establishment who isn’t a very good neighbor.
