Crocodile to re-open (maybe, again)

On Saturday my good friend, photographer and tattoo artist David Choe, got to take a look inside the Crocodile almost a year after it closed suddenly last December. It’s supposed to be finally reopening in about two months under Marcus Charles, who owns the JuJu Lounge and has been involved with half of the rest of the bars in Seattle. I’m not sure just what he intends to do to it, but David will be documenting the re-opening process.
Right now, of course, the inside is weirdly frozen right where everything was left on the last night, chairs still up on the tables, lost keys still left behind. One of the doors was recently smashed, and they’ve covered the windows with paper, but it’s still all the same. It’ll be nice to have the space back, I think, although I imagine that depends on just how it all turns out. (Every time I go into the Juju it is nearly empty, and this worries me a little.)
