Senses Nightclub Owner Renews Push to Reopen

The owner of the former Senses nightclub again is seeking to reopen the establishment.

C & R Events Enterprise LLC, owned by Francisco Dasilva, has applied for a special-use permit to revive the club at 2866 Poplar Ave.

The application, filed with the Office of Planning & Development on Oct. 19, calls for a “restaurant with alcohol sales.”

The Land Use Control Board is slated to hear the request at its Dec. 10 meeting.

C & R Events originally sought a special-use permit shortly after buying the property in May. A letter of intent filed with the original application outlines C & R Events’ plan.

“The new owners plan to reopen the nightclub under the same name,” it reads, adding that a special-use permit is required because the original club had closed. “There are no planned changes to the site except to restripe the parking lot.”

C & R bought the former Senses property from Mascom Properties in May for $1.2 million. In addition to the 14,700-square-foot warehouse that housed the nightclub, the purchase included the adjacent 134-space parking lot. The 2.1-acre property is located on the north side of Poplar west of Racine Street.

The property has been vacant since Senses closed in April 2013 after a nine-year run.
