Maggie Hinson, owner of Little Rock's beloved SOMA dive bar Midtown Billiards, reports that she's working on opening a new jazz and blues club in North Little Rock's Argenta district.

The club, to be called 4-Quarter, will be housed in the old location of Sidetracks Bar at 415 Main Street. She said the target open date is sometime in mid-August, and that the kitchen there will serve Southern-style barbecue.

Hinson will partner with long-time Midtown employee Conan Robinson in the venture, with Robinson serving as part owner of the new club. Robinson currently serves as the bookings and promotions director for Midtown. 

Hinson said she has owned the building where 4-Quarter will be located since the mid-1990s. Remodeling efforts will include restoring and opening the building's old skylights, with a "well-ventilated" smoking lounge upstairs. Hours for 4-Quarter are still in the planning stages.
