Elbow Room, a Comedy Club and Ultra Lounge, to Replace Closed Sports Bar in Kennewick
As my friends and I were coming back from Coachella a couple weeks ago, we were talking about grabbing some food and a beer later that night. Since it was a Tuesday, we figured AYCE wings at Jack-sons in Kennewick would be the perfect spot. Then we found out that one of our favorite bars in town had closed it’s doors. For good. Sucky.
Now, a new comedy club and ultra lounge is getting ready to break the doors back open this July.
The renovation process has already begun as Bobby Quiring, former part owner/general manager of Joker’s in Richland, along with Trudi Corbett have started to get things ready for their new venture called Elbow Room. The comedy club and ultra lounge will seat 150 people and feature live stand-up comedy three nights a week, complete with a Las Vegas vibe and decor.
Quring told the Tri City Herald:
We’re remodeling the whole building, outside and inside. People who have been to Jack-sons here will not even know they’re in the same building. We’re going the whole nine yards and turning it into an ultra club. Ultra is a term I’ve learned [in Las Vegas]. It means a very nice club, just shrunk.
Elbow Room is expected to have their debut show the first weekend in July and will feature stand-up comedian Dante, who has been seen on just about any channel that shows comedy, including NBC’s Last Comic Standing a few seasons ago.
