Twelve Modern Lounge will open in mid-to-late February in the former Capital View-area home of Star Bar. Telly Noel and Myron Jackson, partners at the advertising and marketing firm The Design Group, are co-owners.
Last week, Noel, who as a long time party promoter in the area is better known as Kookieman, said that Twelve will fill a "huge void" in the local night club world by catering to adults 25 and older; in fact, only those 25 and older will be admitted. As the name suggests, the feel of Twelve will be more lounge than dance club, Noel said. The Star Bar decor remains almost entirely intact. There'll be some live music, but mostly acoustic or small jazz or soul combos.
The menu, which Lulav is consulting on, will be all hors d'ouevres. It's still in the works, Noel said, but he expects it to include the likes of sliders, chicken fingers and fries.
Twelve is located at 1900 West 3rd Street. We'll let you know when a grand opening is announced.
