The Attic delays opening in Ybor City, now set for spring 2016
There's a lot of history buried at 1901 15th St. N in Ybor City, the 120-year-old former hardware store and future home of the Attic, a concert venue, cocktail bar and brewery scheduled to open next spring — city permits pending, that is.
Originally, partners Kevin Lilly and Tony Casoria of Rock Brothers Brewing had hoped to open the Attic by the end of 2015, even booking several "grand opening"-type concerts there for December. The first, a solo show by Better Than Ezra singer Kevin Griffin, was scheduled for Thursday, but has been moved to the Cuban Club nearby. Others have been moved or postponed until the venue is complete.
"Right out of the gate, we want to do everything 100 percent right," Lilly said.
