The Missouri-Grand building was built in 1921 and has undergone many re-imaginings since then; from a Mafia-owned club to the Moose Lodge to New Port Richey’s first goth club, and more recently, a restaurant & night club. The vacant building created a blank space in what could be a thriving dining & entertainment district which made it a perfect candidate for a community revitalization project.
People Places purchased 6220 Grand Boulevard in 2019 for this purpose. The design phase began in 2020 and is currently under construction. The new design maximizes the space and potential for energizing the block with an updated exterior and the addition of glass garage doors and windows. The upper floor has been reworked into co-working space & executive suites; the lower floor remains a restaurant with an estimated seating capacity of 150.
