Todd Novasic, the owner of Club Anything, 807 S. 5th St., is converting the gothic / industrial bar into a new concept. I spoke to him earlier tonight and received more information about the change over.
"It's been a long time in the works," says Novasic. "I've grown up. My tastes have changed."
Called The Local, the new bar and music venue will feature local bands, beers, booze and more.
There will be more than 60 beers available, all of which are from Wisconsin, as well as Wisconsin-based spirits.
Every Wednesday is "Witchcraft Wednesday" and all craft beers are $3. On Thursdays, it's '80s and '90s music and prices. Fridays, including this Friday, offers live, local music and Saturday nights will feature variety acts of all kinds.
The space has been freshly painted, most of the goth decor has been removed and the beer garden was updated.
Novasic opened the space in 1996 as the Sanctuary and rebranded it as Club Anything in 1999.
In the near future, he will open The Local at 4 p.m. for happy hour. It's currently open seven nights a week starting at 9 p.m.
Novasic is currently hiring staff and looking for artists to create live paintings for a weekly "arts and crafts" event that will also work in conjunction with quarterly Gallery Nights.
For now, The Local is a work in progress.
"In the not so distant future, the rest of the pieces of the puzzle will be in place," he says.
