A medical-uniform supply store called MIA Scrubs is closing at 1128 S. 9th St., which is flanked by Teri’s on one side and Connie’s Ric Rac on the other.
The silver lining is that the space is up for rent and zoned CMX-2, which means you could open a restaurant or bar by right (entertainment would need approval).
From the listing by Century 21-Forrester on Craigslist:
This is a large, good clean space in the heart of the 9th Street Market! Good for a retail business, yoga studio, etc. Two powder rooms.
Yoga on that section of the market? Meh, that’s not such a good fit there. But how about a late-night diner like Teri’s used to be? The 1,500 square foot property is going for $1,300 a month, lowered this week from the original price of $1,500.
We’re pushing for such a late night amenity because that area is already bumping most nights. People and music already flood out onto the sidewalk at those two bars and often at the two Mexican joints up the block, Fiesta Acapulco and Monteczuma. Across the street, for now anyway, is a boarded vacant lot that serves as a haven for paste-ups and other street art that would make Streets Dept proud.
Good, cheap late-night eats with a liquor license sound like a good mix. We need to get tater tots back to the block. What do you think?
