A meeting was held at the Boys and Girls Club on May 13th for Adam Kulik and Nicole Billitto to present their plans for The Gold Mark (formerly Salud). The Gold Mark is a proposed bar that will serve traditional and craft beer and cocktails ($3-$10) along with a limited food menu of classic bar food ($4-$10). There will be 15 seats at the bar, some high-top and bench seating in the back of the space and 2 café tables on the sidewalk. The goal is to create a safe, comfortable neighborhood bar atmosphere, and the target clientele is local residents aged 25+. Entertainment will include DJs on the weekends, and the owners plan to install soundproofing in order to lessen the noise in the area. Patrons will be encouraged to park on Butler Street, and a doorman will be present on weekends. Limited renovations on the space are slated to begin at the end of May, and the owners expect to open by August 1st. Residents in attendance raised concerns with existing conditions regarding nighttime parking and noise. LU will continue to work with LC to identify short and long term parking solutions, as well as work with business owners and public safety departments to address late night and early morning noise.
Below you will find a fact sheet with additional information about the project.
