Wanna buy a nightclub?

Posted on Fri, May 26, 2006 at 2:40 PM

Remember the old Checkmate Club (or, as it was affectionately known back in the go-go 80s as the "Select-a-Mate Club")? Well, it's kinda just sitting there at 4th and Poplar in North Little Rock, not far from Alltel Arena. The owner of the three-story building, Bob McAdams, has kept the liquor license active by opening every so often, and he's also leased it out for private parties, but what he'd really like to do, he tells us, is sell the Checkmate and lease the building. "I'll lease it at a lot better price that what they're getting over in the River Market," he says. Anyway, if you've ever  had the hankering of being a Studio 54 type club mogul, or just want to create your own type of music or dance venue, McAdams has the place for you. Call him at 758-9379.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
