Daddy’s, formerly Danny’s, still closed, looks haunted

What’s going on with the red-brick building at 1610 Main, the former Irene’s Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge?

The original sign is beginning to peek out from under the sign announcing the place’s last incarnation, Daddy’s Backdoor Bar, a gay leather-and-bear bar that served food. Before it was Daddy’s, it was Danny’s: Danny’s Big Easy — a real restaurant that closed and then reopened at a new location in the Jazz District, at 18th and Vine.

“I keep hearing rumors that the owners want to reopen Daddy’s,” says John Long, publisher of Camp Magazine. “But nothing seems to be happening.”
