The owners of West Peoria’s High Harbor Cannabis Lounge & Event Center are “shifting gears” and delaying the opening of the venue’s indoor cannabis lounge until arrangements can be made for on-site cannabis sales.
According to a news release, “High Harbor is now actively looking for newly state licensed dispensary holders to partially occupy a portion of the cannabis lounge before it opens consumption lounge area.”
Promoted as a “bring your own cannabis” venue, High Harbor was previously slated to open in early 2022 without on-site sales. Presently, the venue’s indoor space remains a “blank canvas” and still needs additional construction work before it is ready to open, Christina Patellaro, High Harbor’s director of business development, said.
The venue occupies the former site of the beloved but defunct Sky Harbor Steak House on 1321 N. Park Road. West Peoria’s city council voted last year to grant High Harbor a special use permit for on-site cannabis consumption – the first such permit in the area.
