Former Alderman Keith Fair, who acquired the Tango Bar about 30 days ago, has given it a new name and a new look. The Place on 6th is located at 507 6th Street. The new name was suggested by inmates during Fair's weekly ministering to the jail population at Racine County Jail. "Where are you coming from they would often ask," he explained. "I'm coming from the Place," he would respond. "Why don't you just name it (the bar) The Place," several inmates suggested. The idea stuck and was a perfect fit for " The Place" which has had a smooth take off, drawing huge crowds nightly.
The Place, which is open seven nights a week, has something for lots of people explained Fair. Last weekend The Placed featured the hit band of the 70's and 80's Another Beginning, whose lead singer, Lee Eddie Mayfield, made a brief professional stint on the national circut. Big Phil and Left Hand, two local DJ's, share three nights of entertainment featuring Pop, R&B, Country & Western as well as easy listing music.
It's a fun spot in the new downtown entertainment district that we suggest you check out!
