Mosaic to expand, reopen

Heard back from Reed Cordish regarding Mosaic's immediate closure.

In the coming weeks, Mosaic (pictured) will expand several thousand feet. 

The new Mosaic will have more lounge seating, additional bars, and a larger outdoor area, Cordish wrote.

It will reopen Feb. 29.

Mosaic's new manager will be Vincent Houston, who previously was a managing partner in Mosaic Houston. He will replace former manager LG Concannon.

"Mosaic has been a great success with its only limitation being size," Cordish wrote.

"Mosaic will continue to be a premier nightlife experience for downtown Baltimore. ... LG has been a great part of Mosaic for many years and will be successful in whatever endeavors he takes on and will continue to be a great friend."

Don't clubs like this need to reinvent themselves annually anyway? Out in L.A. it seems like once Paris Hilton comes through your doors, you need to work on rebranding because your club is going to be sour in a couple weeks.

I wonder if LG just couldn't get the big names. Whenever I've been there when a big-name DJ was spinning, the place was absolutely packed with people going nuts.

That sucks. LG and Adam Auburn always throw a great party. The Winter White Party a few weeks ago was incredible. They even had snow falling throughout the club. I can't wait to see where they land.

LG never had a problem booking the big talent. Perhaps that was the problem, it cost too much. Mosaic in Houston usually relies on resident DJs, with very few "Big Name" acts.

It may have come down to why should we pay $4000 for so and so? When we could just pay $200 bucks for this guy.

With LG at the helm this club, even though Mosaic is in a tourist area, it was still very much Baltimore. We will not see the talent that LG has spent almost 2 decades developing relationships with. Shame, it was incredible to see the caliber DJs LG booked in such a small space.

This is another big hit to DJ culture.

Amen Christian!

I know I'll be looking forward to LG's next endeavor.
