Renovated Live nightclub to reopen Feb. 3
The clubs—currently closed for renovations—were most recently called Live at PJ's and Goodnite Gracie. Under the new ownership, they will be known as Live (the larger, upstairs space with an entrance on First) and The Last Word (the smaller, downstairs space fronting on Huron).
According to a press release, Live will reopen Feb. 3 and 4 with no cover charge and two DJ acts both nights. The Last Word is set to reopen Feb. 7.
A group of downtown business people who, in various combinations, also own Goodtime Charley's, the Alley Bar and BTB Burrito recently bought the two businesses and are revamping their appearance and programming as well as the names. Business had reportedly slowed at the old clubs, which offered a mix of DJs and live musical acts.
According to the press release, Live will feaure dance DJs booked by Embarco Entertainment on weekend nights, with "other forms of live entertainment appealing to fans of every genre of music" during the week. (Losing the venue as a home for live music on weekends has raised concern in the local music community.)
The Last Word "will focus on craft cocktails, have a small stage for live entertainment and maintain a seated and intimate environment," the press release said.
Doors open at 9 p.m. for the grand reopening, with no cover charge. Ages 21 and older are welcome.
