One of the most progressive neighborhoods in the city is rumored to be taking one more step in upping the ante and announcing it's presence as a destination shopping and entertainment spot. As our buddies over at A-Ville Daily found out the guys at Hamburger Mary’s hope to bring stage performances back to A-Ville by building out vacant lesbian bar, Star Gaze as a theater.

The space, would be run by Hamburger Mary's and aptly named "The Ville" would be transformed into a two stage theater for live performances, cabaret shows and late night movies. The space would consist of a front lobby lounge with concessions and a small bar (duh), an intimate 44 seat small stage theater and a larger 100 seat main stage.
