Old Tarr Entertainment, LLC has acquired space at 899 Manchester St. in Lexington, Kentucky. The space, previously occupied by music venue, Busters Billiards & Backroom, will be converted into Manchester Music Hall.
Owners Mitch Potter, Adam Hatton and Adam Short have big plans to renovate the building and create the ultimate event space boasting a variety of music gigs, private events, fundraisers, corporate gatherings and more.
Lexington based Events and Management group, LexEffect, LLC, who also produce MoonTower Music Festival, The Bourbon Social and the CHEW Dinner Series, has signed on to partner with the group to manage event and show booking, promotion and management.
“Lexington is on the verge of being the next Portland, Athens, or Austin, and this music venue and event space will join others in Lexington to take our city to that next level,” LexEffect founder, Kaelyn Query said. “We want to work with the community as well as local vendors to maximize this space to its bets potential.”
Co-Owner Adam Hatton ensures that the space will “be cleaned up with a new feel,” in order to transition from a rock-and-roll music gig to black-tie charity gala. Collectively, the owners want this to be a truly inclusive space, open to all music genres, events and groups.
Manchester Music Hall is tentatively set to open Wednesday Sept. 30.
