Drink al fresco along the pathway

The trash magnate turned real estate-buying Batman (and maybe would-be mayor) Sidney Torres IV is gearing up for another project along the Lafitte Greenway. The venture capitalist recently submitted a proposal to the City Planning Commission for a bar, according to the Mid-City Messenger.

Located at 501 N. Genois St., the plan calls for a 2,500-square-foot indoor bar with a 900-square-foot mezzanine, and more the 5,000-square feet of outdoor covered and open air seating overlooking the recreational pathway. The bar would also offer off-street parking, bicycle parking, and bike air pump.

The operators plan to initially host food trucks at the bar, which won’t have an onsite kitchen. Pending permitting approvals from the city, renovations would tentatively begin this winter or spring and wrap up in time for a summer debut.
