The former home of Spin Nightclub, 10 5th St. S., could reopen as new restaurant and bar The Pourhouse as soon as June 1. Co-owner Deepak Nath would like people to know one important thing right away about the new concept.

“This is absolutely nothing like Spin,” he said.

While The Pourhouse will host live events and entertainment with a cover charge, he stresses that it is a restaurant and bar, not a club. Unlike Spin, The Pourhouse will feature a full kitchen and be open for lunch and happy hour. The restaurant will be decorated in a 1920s prohibition style and boast a few unique features. Along with a 100-person outdoor area, the restaurant will feature jail cell-style restrooms and an upstairs area called “The Hooch Room.” The biggest attraction, literally, will be its massive 24-foot television screen.

The Pourhouse co-owner Deepak Nath is a project manager for Nath Companies and has a long history in the restaurant industry. Nath Companies owns the Axel’s restaurant chain, and Deepak Nath has owns or has owned nightclubs Fahrenheit, Envy and Bootleggers. His partners operate the Maple Tavern in Maple Grove.
