Lush Life for Mississippi Nights?

Posted By on Thu, Jan 11, 2007 at 12:44 PM

Mississippi Nights hasn't even closed yet, but speculation about its new location continues to run rampant. I reported in this week's paper that the venue is considering relocating to a new facility on Olive and Compton, near the site of the proposed Saint Louis University arena. Today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch brings a different spin from music critic Kevin Johnson:

"The buzz is that Mississippi Nights and a new nightclub and dining club called Lush could join forces within a four-level, 11,000-square-foot complex at 3037 Olive Street, near the Loft Jazz Club, later this year. This would 'provide St. Louis the ultimate entertainment venue it deserves,' according to information at"

Indeed, as of this past weekend that MySpace page said: "begining december 2007, Lush & Mississippi Nights will attach to provide St. Louis the ultimate entertainment venue it deserves."

That was news to Mississippi Nights co-owner Rich Frame, who, when I asked him about it before we went to press, told me he'd "never heard of �em."

Reached via a MySpace message, a representative from Lush declined to comment.

When I checked the page after communicating with both parties, the phrase linking the two had disappeared.

We'll keep you posted.
