502 Bar takes over the Limelight
After a few weeks of negotiations, it has been officially announced that The Korova team led by Angel Castorena will be stepping away from Limelight at the end of January to focus solely on The Korova and it’s launch of Room 237 (in the basement of The Korova) this Spring.
Deric Wynne (502 Bar) & his team will be the new tenants and soon to be owners of Limelight as of February 1st, 2015.
Casey Lange continues to own the property which will be continue to be called Limelight but under new ownership. The local venue hotspot has been a staple on the St. Mary’s Strip and will continue to be for years to come.
All shows scheduled at Limelight after January will be moved to The Korova or 502 Bar while Limelight undergoes some cosmetic changes and finalizes their license with TABC. The venue looks to reopen in mid-late March with no firm date set for the Grand Reopening.
Both The Korova & 502 Bar are to remain open as this deal has no effect of the two respective staple venues.
I’m excited to see changes to both the Korova basement and Limelight as both groups are sure to bring different perspectives and genres to these San Antonio staples.
