New Walker’s Point Bar Coming
Called "Night Rider" and "opening soon," sign says. So what happened to "Pub Fiction"?
Walker’s Point may have a new bar in the works, though details surrounding the establishment remain unclear.
A business called Night Rider is “opening soon,” according to a sign attached to the space at 133 W. Pittsburgh Ave. The sign gives an email for employment inquiries, and also promises the new bar will have “bodacious brews, radical bites and righteous cocktails.”
Last year, license applications were filed for the same address. ReVampd Hospitality, LLC applied for a Class B Tavern License and Public Entertainment Premises License on November 2, 2018. However, the applications did not list “Night Rider” as the business name, and the licenses were never issued. ReVampd Hospitality lists two agents on the license applications: Kasey Kidwell and Erin Cave.
According to the application, Kidwell, who lists a Milwaukee address, would have 20 percent ownership. Cave, who lists an address in Tiburon, California, would have 80 percent ownership.
The City of Milwaukee License Division says that there is a hold on the Revampd Hospitality’s license applications for occupation and unpaid fees. “Until the hold is lifted and the fees are paid the license cannot be issued,” a representative with the division says. “[The license] is granted, so it could be issued if they took care of those things.”
It is unclear if Kidwell and Cave changed the name from Pub Fiction to Night Rider, or if Night Rider has completely different ownership. Neither Kidwell nor Cave were reachable through phone or email. A call to the business phone number listed on the application also went unanswered. An email sent to the address provided on the Night Rider sign was not immediately answered.
