LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 27, 2018)—Of all the changes taking place in the Warehouse Block over the the next several months, perhaps the most high profile is that surrounding National Avenue music venue Cosmic Charlie’s, which announced plans in March to shutter its National Avenue location this summer and relocate to a new venue.
“No, we are not closing due to complaints from our new neighbors. Yes, we are moving to a new location more suited to our business model,” read a statement posted by the venue on Facebook in March.
Cosmic Charlie’s owner Mark Evans and property manager Chad Walker both confirmed that the two parties came to a mutual agreement in March allowing the venue to be released early from its long-term lease at 723 National Ave. The move follows a well-documented series of noise complaints over the past 18 months from longtime residents of Aurora Avenue, a quiet residential street a block away from the venue.
