LKH MANAGEMENT ANNOUNCES MANHOLE AND MORE COMING TO HALSTED
LKH MANAGEMENT ENTERS INTO MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT WITH DAVE GASSMAN TO REOPEN MANHOLE AND DEVELOP A NEW VENUE IN THE FORMER SPIN/WHISKEY TRUST SPACE
LKH Management (Hydrate, Replay, Elixir, Halsted’s) resumes their operating oversight of Manhole and will begin planning a new venue for the prime Boystown corner at 3200 North Halsted.
David Gassman, the former owner of Spin, recently reacquired the space and partnered with LKH to bring Manhole and an accompanying venue back to Boystown. Gassman is thrilled to be reopening the iconic gateway to the neighborhood. “The new development will again return Manhole to Halsted, while at the same time work will commence to redevelop the upstairs (original Spin space) into a new entertainment option for the gay community to enjoy.”
According to Mark Liberson, President of LKH Management, “I have a great deal of respect for Dave Gassman and his long history of support in our community. I’m excited to have this opportunity to bring Manhole back to Halsted and to create a new destination in Boystown for our community.”
Sean Kotwa, LKH Managing Partner, expands that “The LKH Team is already working hard to develop a new look for the original Spin space to build upon the popular history of the club and bring it to today.”
The timeframe for both the return of Manhole and the new venue will be announced as soon as a solid date becomes available.
LKH also announced that AK Miller will continue to be involved in the return of Manhole, and that Collin Wood is being promoted to the management team and will be focusing his energies on reopening Manhole and the development of the new venue.
According to Miller, a member of the LKH Team responsible for reopening Manhole last year, “We look forward to revising the schedule for Manhole, expanding elements of the look and feel, as well as to making changes to improve our guests’ enjoyment of our space.” Collin Wood, shared that “We are looking forward to expanding on the large following that frequented Manhole when it reopened and to developing new programming for this launch!”
