Joe Dunne, who operates multiple restaurant/pubs that occasionally host live music in the area, will reportedly partner with LN for the venture, according to the Boston Globe. Exactly what the team plans for the 653-capacity Paradise Rock Club is unclear.
A purchase agreement has already been signed for the venue and a transfer of the liquor license from current owners the Lyons Group is pending, a Boston Licensing Board official reportedly told the paper.
A Paradise employee told the Boston Herald, "It’s going to stay a music venue from what I’ve been told." The club has acts booked through March.
A hearing for Paradise’s transfer of business is set for January 9th.
