Iguana Cantina, the large-scale downtown club at Lombard Street and Market Place which closed in early July, will reopen as mist in the near future, organizers said.
The space is being renovated and re-themed right now. mist (the "m" is intentionally lowercase) will have new tiling, a paint job and a new dance floor, according to consultant Jim Temple, who owns Bourbon Street.
Temple said the building is getting "a real, real big face lift," aimed at attracting a crowd that's slightly older than Iguana Cantina's. ...
When owner Tim Bennett closed Iguana Cantina in July, he had plans to reopen it as an upscale rum bar called Mojito's. But when I called Bennett today, he said he'd been bought out by his business partner, Dave Adams. So much for that idea.
Temple said they're going to cordon off a section of the building to make mist a more intimate space. The section will be unused at first, but could later be turned into a lounge area.
