Black Cat Seeks to Build Third Floor, Add Bar
14th Street NW nightclub Black Cat is seeking to build a third floor and an additional bar, according to a liquor license notice posted today. The club has applied for a change to its liquor license and a public hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 30.
The notice says Black Cat has applied "to make some modification to the building including the addition of the 3rd floor for extra dressing room and storage space. The changes will include 1500 square foot room with a bar. In addition, increase the total load by 149."
From the notice alone, it's not clear if the third floor will include the new bar or if the bar will be added to existing space. According to Black Cat staff, club owner Dante Ferrando is out of town; he could not be reached by phone today. I'll update with details when I have them.
In the meantime, read the notice after the jump.
