Plans for an outdoor bar to be built on an undeveloped site along the Lafitte Greenway in Mid-City were approved Tuesday by New Orleans city planners.
The project is among the first retail efforts planned along the $9 million greenway, which opened in late 2015 and stretches from the edge of the French Quarter to Bayou St. John.
Local businessmen Herbert Dyer, Billy Good and Rusty Smith — who are partners in the dog daycare business Camp Bow Wow in Mid-City — are behind the new effort. It would be built near Bayou Bicycles.
Dyer and Smith also have ownership ties to the Velvet Cactus in New Orleans and Baton Rouge and the Bulldog bar and grill locations, which include New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
