    Who can give me the name of this bar.

    "There used to be a bar by the tracks off of Rosecrans, probably 25-30 years ago... I can't remember the name of the place.. It was a warehouse looking bldg. near a four lane highway. Big bands play there all the time".

    The only joints that makes me think of are Brick by Brick and the old Soma. But I'm not sure how long either of those has been/was around nor if they're quite in the same area you're talkin' about. :bolt:

    I was thinking of SOMA too, but I think it became the new Casbah 15+ years ago, and the old Casbah became Club Velvet. Also I think that place may have been called Club Bulk back then.:icon_shrug::icon_toast:

    You're talking about SoMa in it's second location.

    It was on Metro Street just the other side of the river from the only spot where Rosecrans comes near the tracks at the old town transit center.

    It was in a former warehouse back then. I know Smashing Pumpkins played there, plus other well known bands.

    It shut down for a while, then re-opened not far from there on Sports Arena a little less than 10 years ago.

    Oh, it's not a bar either. It's all all ages place and concert venue. No Alcohol served.
