Can't Stop Won't stop


There's a lot going on. How can I keep up?

Well, for starters, sign up for our email list and follow us on Instagram! Check out our latest construction progress below. Right now, we are finishing the final phase of our first building, MONDO, at 406 North Howard. MONDO will house a multi-use performance venue, nightly bar, and artist studios / offices and, most importantly light up our corner of the block for the first time in decades.
 

What are you doing right now?

Lots of nitty-gritty, unsexy things like creating infrastructure for waterlines that hasn't previously existed on the block; installing fire sprinklers; demolition and renovation for more studios and extra bathrooms; and plumbing infrastructure for the bar. Also, pretty things like outfitting and furnishing the space, painting, and renovating the facade! We can't wait to open the doors of MONDO!
 

What happens after you open MONDO?

Well, in MONDO you'll have a great new bar meet friends at, a permanent venue to experience new, exciting, and challenging performance work in Baltimore, and an affordable new place to make art yourself. As for us, we'll have plenty of work ahead of us! This is a three building project and vision. We're already in the midst of stabilizing our other two buildings at 408-412 North Howard. Upon completion, these next two buildings will house: a black-box theater; studio, rehearsal, and office space; affordable live-work apartments (!!); and a neighborhood cafe.

Who is she?

MONDO was painted up in glorious brights and got a brand new storefront! But guts first, beauty second. We're also working on the infrastructure of all three buildings to get them safe and functional for the community and our operations.

 
  PeekaBoo!  We ripped out the old storefront and are replacing it with a historically appropriate one!
