Broadway Jazz Club will take over Outabounds space

There had been talk, several months ago, that a group of investors was going to reopen the long-shuttered gay sports bar Outabounds, at 3601 Broadway, as the latest incarnation of the Plaza jazz venue Jardine's (which closed in 2011). But the former club's name, Jardine's, was reportedly not available.

The real story is that the space - which has been occupied by a series of gay bars over the years and an ill-fated seafood joint called, unfortunately, Crabs on Broadway - will officially become a new jazz club in September called the Broadway Jazz Club. The lease was signed with developer Greg Patterson last Thursday.

Neil Pollock, owner of Propaganda Communications, is the principal of the new group behind the jazz club.

"The club will open," Patterson says, "after they obtain a liquor license and construction is completed."

Patterson operates his own popular nightspot, the Uptown Arts Bar, just two doors south of the new jazz club and thinks the synergy of the two clubs will be good for the neighborhood (which once had a major jazz presence when the Colony restaurant was located in the former Ambassador Hotel, at 36th Street and Broadway, in the 1950s; legendary singer Marilyn Maye was discovered there).

"The Uptown Arts Bar doesn't feature jazz very often," Patterson says. "And the Broadway Jazz Club will feature music six nights a week."

There will be a dining component at the new club, Patterson says. "I understand they've hired the former chef at the Carriage Club."
