“Deciding to sell the property was not an easy one,” says David Cohen, “as both of these venues are near and dear to us. But I know that under this particular new ownership, both establishments will reach new levels of success, and that is not only good for the businesses themselves, it will also greatly benefit the community of North Park as a whole.”
SD Observatory promises a seamless transition, but adds that there will be a lot more buzz in town, with big names in entertainment lined up to draw audiences in from all areas of San Diego and beyond.
Besides the increase in shows and artists, the new owners intend on running operations pretty much as they are now. They have also expressed their sincere interest in teaming with community members to embrace North Park and carry on the legacy of support established through the years by David Cohen, Bobby Jones and The Verant Group.
The North Park Theater and West Coast Tavern are located at 2895 University Avenue in North Park.
