An empty lot behind Sonic could soon become our neighborhood’s newest hot spot, although few details of Club Azul have been decided, so far.
“Until that zoning requirement goes through, we don’t do any design work,” says Jay Woo of JNF Associates, the project’s architect who is also representing owner, NWH & McCree, ltd., in its application for a specific use permit to operate a nightclub at the site, 11921 Northwest Highway.
The land is zoned commercial, and neighboring bar Bombones already has a specific use permit to serve alcohol, meaning the request does not set a new precedent on the block. According to the application, “the facility will be open mostly in the evenings on weekends.”
The case heads to the City Plan Commission on Jan. 23.
