Scottsbluff, Neb. — An entrepreneur in western Nebraska is turning a long-vacant downtown building into an event center.
Shots Bar and Grill Owner Chad Leeling tells the Scottsbluff Star-Herald that he wanted to bring country and rock bands back to downtown Scottsbluff. Leeling says his new Dark Horse event center will feature live music three nights a week.
Leeling plans to offer discounted rates for residents to use the space as a reception area for weddings, reunions, graduation parties and other special events.
Dark Horse will also hold free country dance lessons once a week in the new 10,000-square-foot space.
He says construction could be complete in a month. Dark Horse still needs to pass inspections and be approved for a liquor licensing before the venue can open.
