Mare to become The Metro, again

A longtime local developer is heading back to the site where he spun tunes in the ’70s — but this time he’s acting as manager.

Scott Morgan, of Morgan Builders near Saratoga Lake, said he has plans with business partner Fred Sharifipour to return 17 Maple Ave. to its former state as The Metro.

The business is currently listed for sale ($300,000) at loopnet.com and Morgan says the pair plans to buy it from Peter Paquet.

The multi-venue music house — which on an August night can put out enough amp to be heard throughout a five-block radius — has a history of being made over and over again, as a dance club, pub, bar and restaurant.

Most recently, the nightclub/restaurant Mare ran in conjunction with Twilight Grille, the one-time burger joint operated by Casey and Alex Herrera. The Grille opened and closed over the course of about two months this summer. Mare itself appeared to have closed in the last few weeks.

Previously, it was Luna Lounge.

In its next materialization, the establishment will be simply, in Morgan’s words, “less of a restaurant, more of a pub.”

Look out for a new menu, live bands and themed entertainment nights: open-mic Wednesdays, Skidmore Thursdays and Monday night football.

Morgan expects an Oct. 1 opening; lunch starts at 11 a.m. and the party is on Thursday through Saturday nights. For more information, call 330-4996.
