CPCC’s central campus now has plans to tear down the popular music venue in Elizabeth, along with several restaurants and a book store.
Negotiations on the Double Door Inn Venue are still being finalized between the college and the property’s current owner, Nick Karres.
CPCC has secured the adjacent property on the northeast corner of Elizabeth and Charlottetowne avenues – which includes several restaurants, a student book store, and a coffee house & pub – and the college does not plan on renewing any of the leases. They plan on using the land for future growth of the central campus.
The Double Door Inn is one of Charlotte’s last remaining historic music venues, having played host to some of the southeast’s greatest soul, jazz, funk, bluegrass and fusion bands over the past few decades.
Do you think the city should save the Double Door?
