(CelebrityAccess News Service) — House of Blues will open a new club in fall 2004 in the famed Euclid District of downtown Cleveland near Jacobs Field, Gund Arena and the Public Square. House of Blues Cleveland will be one of the primary tenants in a mixed use retail and entertainment district currently under development at 4th and Euclid Streets.
Other Cleveland venues booked by HOB are Blossom
Music Center and The Scene Pavilion. The House of Blues club is a key element of the redevelopment and revitalization of Euclid corridor district. Preliminary plans for the new structure include a 1,000-capacity Music Hall and a 230-seat restaurant featuring an outdoor dining area and exclusive special events space.
The venue will present live, national touring artists, southern cuisine in the restaurant, accommodations for special events and a display of American folk art throughout the building. House of Blues venues feature one of the largest collections of American folk art in the United States.
"Music is a key part of this area's culture," said House of Blues CEO Greg Trojan. "We're thrilled to make a new home for ourselves in the same city that has given us Joe Walsh, Macy Gray, Marilyn Manson, Michael Stanley and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We are excited and proud to be part of the redevelopment of the Euclid district."
Mayor Jane L. Campbell stated, "We are thrilled that the House of Blues has agreed to open its ninth location in
downtown Cleveland. We know the House of Blues can choose to locate in any city across the country and we are excited to have them call Cleveland home. They are an integral part to the revitalization of Cleveland's commercial and entertainment Districts."
The other HoB clubs are located in Cambridge, MA; New Orleans; Los Angeles; Chicago; Myrtle Beach, SC; Orlando; Las Vegas; and Anaheim, CA. — By Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
