Jazz club ‘The Nines’ coming to the Fayetteville square?

EJ Ball Building

There’s been a lot of action around the square recently. In the last year, a pizza place, a cupcake cafe, a Mexican restaurant, and a Feel Good Lounge (RIP) have opened their doors downtown.

Word on the street is that Greg Hodges, also known as DJ Greg from Speakeasy is planning to open a bar inside the EJ Ball Building, just across the lobby from Bliss Cupcake Cafe.

Hodges says the new bar will be called The Nines, and will focus on live jazz in a 1940’s style atmosphere.

The space, located on the ground floor of the west side of the building, features an all-glass exterior, and a small patio with a good view of Dickson St. and Old Main.

We’ll keep you posted. Can Fayetteville support a live jazz establishment downtown?
