The former Latin Quarter here is being reopened December 28 as Jean Goldkette's Fantasia, under the management of Goldkette, who rates as one of the top names in music of the past three decades, altho relatively inactive for several years.

The Fantasia will stress food. Buddy Milton's orchestra has been set to open, with a floorshow under consideration for a later date.

Jean Goldkette's Fantasia, formerly the Latin Quarter and long Detroit's swankest theater-type nitery, folded last Sunday night (5) after a month of formal operation under the banner of the formerly famed orkster. The spot, which housed a long string of failures, ran into a financial jam after a tough New Year's Eve and progressively weakened biz.
