Something’s Afoot in Former King Street Blues Location

There are no signs on the walls or permits from the city visible, but there are nevertheless signs of life at the former King Street Blues restaurant at 112 N. St. Asaph Street.

Neighbors told ALXnow that movers bringing equipment into the space told them the new restaurant would be called Old Hat. A company under that name with the King Street Blues address was created on Sept. 11 this year.

While the building is still covered in King Street Blues signs, the former two-story barbecue and southern cuisine spot has sat empty since at least early 2018. Patrick’s Fine Linens and Home Decor next door is likewise abandoned, with some of the windows broken.

Paint cans and other signs of activity are visible through the sheets of paper plastered over the windows of King Street Blues. While no permits are visible on the outside of the building, city records show a number of recent inspections of the address.

The owners of the Silverman Galleries next door said they didn’t know anything about the new restaurant, but said they were happy to see something new coming to the long-vacant location.

Owners of Old Hat LLC could not be reached for comment.
