reason for the move is two-fold: lower rent change in concept to more of a kid's birthday party place.
One of the oldest and longest-running live-music clubs in Deep Ellum is pulling the plug. Curtain Club, which has been open at 2800 Main St. for more than 20 years, will close on June 30.

God willing these soulless establishments will stay on the newer north end and out of the heart of Deep Ellum.
This banner was displayed on this building (across the street from Bottled Blonde):

So I guess it's official, this northern section of Deep Ellum is now Uptown 2.0

DEEP ELLUM TO IMPLEMENT SPECIFIC DROP-OFF/PICK-UP ZONES FOR UBER & LYFT DRIVERS.
Starting April 18, Uber & Lyft Drivers Will Only Be Able To Pick Up Or Drop Off Riders At One Of Five Designated Locations Throughout The Neighborhood.
Drivers will now be asked to pick up and drop off their rideshare clientele in one of five agreed-upon zones:
On Good Latimer Expressway by the neon Deep Ellum sign (near the future home of Punch Bowl Social)
On Malcolm X Boulevard, just north of its intersection with Indiana Street (alongside the Broadstone Ambrose apartment complex)
On Commerce Street just west of its intersection with Malcolm X Boulevard (across the street from Zatar Lebanese Tapas & Bar)
On Swiss Avenue, just west of its intersection with Good Latimer Expressway (between the Deep Ellum DART stop and Lizard Lounge)
On Pryor Street, which was recently converted into a two-way strip, right between Main Street and Commerce Street (between Pecan Lodge and Ruins)

Getting good rest is important for these patients and being so close to the entertainment district in DE doesn't seem quiet or peaceful. I hope that they are investing in good soundproofing. During the day, it will be a nice area for patients and their families to be able to walk around and eat close by, though.

An example of the disconnect between the people on this forum and the people who live, work and own businesses in Deep Ellum.

Stuff that will increase their medical district designation they would like to have. Before it was just Baylor now with more reinvestment by more medical industry businesses they increase their value and the profile of their urban campus. It was sleepy before and by encouraging things like A&M dental school expansion, and this cancer-related hotel they increase the activity of the neighborhood. I am sure they have plans for more buildings they want to add to their own list of needs but adding hotels, office buildings full of GP doctors and specialists along with retail/restaurants that cater to hospital visitors and staff they make Baylor Dallas more of a serious medical district. The Deep Ellum stuff while beneficial in small doses is possibly more of a nuisance for them because they aren't interested in a troublesome entertainment district that clogs access to their hospital. They would rather see more residential development to provide an adequate level of living for nurses, doctors, and other medical staff.

It's quite informative and interesting, even though it was a project by a 7th grader back in 2012. It also has a song from the 1930's that I'd never heard before, "Deep Ellum Blues." Apparently the Grateful Dead did a cover of this song.

I suspect that Baylor has acquired much real estate in the neighborhood for expansion. I fear that these properties will sit as parking lots or underutilized buildings perpetually. I don’t know if the American Cancer Society acquired this site from Baylor, but the sooner that these warehoused properties are put into service, even for hospital related uses, the better for the neighborhood.
And it is a wonderful amenity for people coming here for treatment.
