Scott Kading, the owner of the Yacht Club, 13 S. Linn St., recently purchased Gabe’s, 330 E. Washington St.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to join the forces of two live-music venues just down the alley from each other,” Kading said in a press release.

He will continue to maintain the Yacht Club along with Gabe’s. Yacht Club manager Pete McCarthy will take care of daily business at both venues.

Kading said purchasing Gabe’s would allow him to book a wider variety of shows.

“You can do anything up there from rock to punk to metal to bluegrass to bigger jam bands that don’t fit on the Yacht Club stage,” Kading said in the press release. “Plus the feedback from the community has been tremendous. We have had people hug us because they are excited in what it can become.”
