LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A portion of the former River City Tire building on Frankfort Avenue is slated to become a neighborhood bar and restaurant called The Hub Louisville, according to records filed with Louisville Metro planning officials.

The bar will be open 7 days a week from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. with “peak business occurring after 11 p.m.,” according to a letter from Talmage Collins, manager of The Hub Louisville LLC.

As WDRB reported in November, the former tire shop at 2235 Frankfort Avenue was sold for $662,500 to a company led by brothers Andrew and Aaron Mueller, who plan an “adaptive re-use” fitting with the Clifton retail-restaurant corridor.

The Hub Louisville plans to lease about 7,600 square feet, with a 1,400-square-foot outdoor patio, according to Collins' letter to planning staff. In an email, Collins declined to comment, saying the project is still in the "early stages of planning."

Collins submitted a parking plan for the bar, which involves leasing 10 off-site spaces from the owner of the Zen Garden at 2240 Frankfort Ave.

In an interview Thursday, Andrew Mueller said his company, Frankfort Avenue LLC, does not yet have a lease with The Hub Louisville.

He said the people behind the bar want parking permission and other details approved before obligating themselves to a lease.

"We are negotiating; they are doing their due diligence," he said, adding that he should know more by March 15.

Mueller said he doesn't know yet what would become of the building's remaining square footage. The old repair shop is about 12,500 square feet.
