Venue 578, Brink, and Club Nokturnal are transitioning into an entirely new entertainment complex concept, as we speak.

Brink, a short-lived gay club concept located behind Venue 578 at 47 W. Amelia Street [GMap] will transition into two separate sister venues; Odd Jobs and Blackstar.

Venue 578, formerly Firestone (it’s located at 578 Orange, hence the name), will reopen in April as Vanguard, with an impressive increase in capacity that is rumored to put it on par with House of Blues, according to a recent report by Orlando Weekly

The plans below, prepared by John D. Youngman, Archtect, reveal a number of improvements, including the removal of bathrooms, windows and numerous walls, construction of new performance platforms, and more. Scroll down to see the complete set of plans submitted to the City.
