With Yassine under fire, what’s next for downtown club scene?

Pigeon at Treasure Island

In ’96, Hussein Ali ‘Mike’ Yassine opened Treasure Island, what was to be the first venue of many in the Yassine Enterprises family.

At least two new venues were planned for this year: one where 219 West had once been and another unnamed project aimed for the Rainey Street District.
