Sidetracks owner buys Little Rock bars

Posted By on Thu, Jan 12, 2012 at 4:21 PM

Back in 2009, Discovery night club owner Norman Jones told the Times that, "anything I've got is for sale to the right person at the right price." It looks like the right person was Phillip Patten, owner of the North Little Rock bar Sidetracks, who purchased 610 Center and Pulse/Off Center from Jones in the fall. No word on the price, but manager Todd Chambers detailed some of the things that have changed and some that will stay the same.

610 Center is now officially SixTen Center Street Bar, and Pulse is Miss Kitty's/Saloon. Sidetracks is now known as Trax.

Chambers said Miss Kitty’s has a "rustic country décor going on. It’a a work in progress." He added that the club would be opening up to live bands. "We’re also going to do karaoke starting this year and some other theatrical acts. And it’s still going to be a dance and socializing bar, too," he said.

Miss Kitty's and Saloon — both under the same roof at 307 W. 7th St. — will also be rented out for private events and fundraisers. All of the bars will remain gay friendly and gay-owned and operated, but open to all, Chambers said.

As for whether he might be considering the sale of Discovery, Jones chuckled and quipped, "like I said before..."
