The new owners of the former Jillian's location downtown have big plans for the North Pearl Street location.

According to the Times Union, the new owners of the building  plan to turn the location into a pub and event/music venue on the first-floor and a dance club on the 2nd floor!

I spent many a night partying it up at Jillian's back in it's heyday, and it would be great to see something really cool back in that location. Another great music venue would be awesome!  Owners Chris Pratt and Alessio Depoli, who run several Albany bars and restaurants, hope the new project will be a great draw for live music, events, & banquets. Who knows, maybe we will have a GNA show or 2 there!
