Bar & Grill /Nightclub Going Into 302 West Building?
Several unconfirmed reports say the 302 West State Street building might be leased to a restaurant and music purveyor.
Several Patch readers have called or e-mailed on this Valentine's Day to say that the heart of Geneva has a strong new beat.
Sources say Evenflow Music & Spirits LLC is taking a look at either leasing or purchasing the former 302 West building at the southwest corner of State Street and Third Street in downtown Geneva.
Nick Mercadante is the owner and assistant general manager of the company, which some say is interested in putting a bar and grill or entertainment club at the former State Bank building, which more recently was the home for 302 West and other restaurants.
Calls to Mercadante and to commercial real estate agent Tony Stefancic were not immediately returned.
The website for Even Flow Music & Spirits is still under construction.
The historic, brick former State Bank building has been vacant for more than four years.
The possible lease or sale of the corner building would be a shot in the arm to Geneva's downtown, which has seen a number of vacancies in recent months. The Merra-Lee shops across the street from 302 West and the Kiss the Sky location at the intersection's other corner are available for sale or lease.
Sources say other prominent buildings in the downtown have opportunties for tenants in the near future.
Patch will follow up to this article as more information becomes available.
