Spaghetti Warehouse to Become Music Venue?

View Larger Map

Avram Hornik’s (Drinker’s Pub, Drinker’s Tavern, Drinker’s West, Noche, Lucy’s Hat Shop) live music venue looks to have new life. Originally planned for the old Jumbo Theater at Front and Girard, Hornik’s name is on the liquor license application at 1026 Spring Garden Street, the just closed Spaghetti Warehouse. Joining Hornik on the license is local promoter and R5 Production’s headman Sean Agnew.

We’ve heard the plan is for an 800 capacity live music venue that would join Polaris and Electric Factory as live music venues in the area.

We’re still waiting to hear back from Hornik or Agnew.

Update: There has been some confusion regarding this post and accusations that it wasn’t fact checked.

Fact checking does indeed have a place in a digital age and that is what Foobooz engaged in prior to running this story. After hearing a rumor of a music venue from a local source we reached out to the parties involved. We received no comment but did an online search of the PLCB licensees database. It was there that we found Hornik and Agnew listed as officers. We never stated their names where on the physical orange placard.

With that information we made the decision to publish the story and we stand behind it as a thoroughly fact-checked post.
