Grand Valley’s M City Lounge opens as new concert venue
Concert goers and musicians alike now have a new venue to attend — M City Lounge, located at 515 S. Seventh St., in Grand Junction (old flea market building).
Owners Tina and Jacob Sheridan, Grand Junction residents, leased the 14,000-square-foot space on two-and-a-half acres on Nov. 1.
“It’s gorgeous,” Tina said, adding the space is large enough to host weddings, concerts, parties and more.
According to Tina, the space also has open shop areas for businesses to rent. Currently the facility hosts Moe Pings Kool Things and Fallen Ink tattoo shop.
The site also features a full kitchen for parties and weddings, a pool hall and more.
“It’s always great having another venue or local joint open up,” said Aaron Seibert of a local band, JACK+JILL. “Everyone needs to give this place some support. It’s not every day something like this pops up in Grand Junction.”
Several bands recently performed at the new venue on Nov. 29, and the space hosted a crowd of about 100 people, Tina added.
ABOUT THE OWNERS
Tina recently graduated with an early childhood development degree and worked in a day care. She and Jacob have been together for 10 years.
“The opportunity kind of fell into our laps, and my husband is creative with ideas on how to use the space,” she said. “So, we decided to do it.”
While no alcohol is currently served at M City Lounge, the Sheridans plan to apply for a liquor license at the beginning of next year.
The next event for the venue will be a fundrasier for the Williams family, who recently moved to the Grand Valley. The Williams’ 4-year-old daughter, Shania, suffers from intractable epilepsy. Funds raised will go towards the purchase of a seizure-response dog. It is set for Sunday, Dec. 14, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets cost $5 for children and $3 for adults. The event will cater to children, which includes face painting, cookie decorating, live storytelling and Christmas dancing by Santa Nana.
