Edmonton music fans have been hearing whispers of a new downtown venue opening up in spring of 2015, and as more answers are revealed, more questions are raised in anticipation of what could change the face of the city’s live music scene.
The Needle Tavern plans to bring live music, a full kitchen and bar to the old home of CKUA on Jasper Avenue seven nights a week. While a lot of the venue is still in the works, there are plans for two floors, one with two stages for shows ranging from 150 to 450 people and another with traditional bar games like billiards and darts.
