North Park Theatre Gets Overhauled
Formerly the Birch North Park Theatre, this North Park landmark has been expanded and renovated into a standing-room-only concert space.
A trip to North Park isn’t great find/well staged complete without a stop at the historic North Park Theatre—if only to admire its charming 1920s architecture. Formerly the Birch North Park Theatre, the neighborhood’s “crowning jewel” recently was acquired by David Cohen, Bobby Jones and the Verant Group. The new owners have expanded the capacity of the 32,000-square-foot theater, which previously had a seating capacity of 731, to now accommodate 1,100 in a mostly standing-room-only concert space. In partnership with Tim Mays (owner of The Casbah) the restored theater will host mostly concerts year-round. 2891 University Ave., North Park, 619.239.8836. thenorthparktheatre.com
