Anyone know what happened...Did the owners or management change or just an overhaul to what is supposed to be an improvement to compete with Main Street?

Vortex is the new name. I'm asking if it is management or owners that has changed to create the new name or just an overhaul of the bar.

From what I hear, they have changed management and changing ownership? I know someone who said they have aleady ripped out some of the trashy carpet, replaced it with flooring of some type- and remaking the stage. Don't think they are wanting to compete with Main Street, as they have the capacity to seat, serve and hold close to 10 times what MS can. Heard they are trying to get more regional acts there, not just the same ole same ole.
I wish them luck. May have to check them out when I'm back in Marion.

I've seen on Facebook that they are going to have a re-opening in September. I thought maybe that Main Street was creating some competition with live bands and karaoke. I wasn't a regular visitor to Ivan's but it did seem to have faltered recently.

It is next to Lightning Lanes, the old Ivans. We stopped in last night to see what all of the buzz was about. Man! It has changed! Looked like they tore out some of the old carpet and actually are making an effort to clean the place up. I talked to a guy who was working there and it sounds like they are trying to get some new talent to play weekend nights. Hope they keep the trash out, if so- they will be ok. I'm going to try it-

Per Websters: Vortex = a mass of fluid (as a liquid) with a whirling or circular motion that tends to form a cavity or vacuum in the center of the circle and to draw toward this cavity or vacuum bodies subject to its action;
