The B.O.B. is planning to reopen some of its restaurants and entertainment hotspots next week for indoor dining and live entertainment.

The five-floor entertainment and food venue owned by Grand Rapids restaurant company The Gilmore Collection said in an email to customers that the mixed-use building will reopen Wednesday for indoor dining, beverage specials, billiards, live entertainment in Eve Nightclub and free entry on weekends (excluding Eve).

The B.O.B., short for Big Old Building, is still listed for sale by the Gilmore Collection on the Commercial Alliance of Realtors website for $15.5 million, as the Business Journal reported in November. The listing includes the real estate and businesses within, and the venue can be purchased with the 20 Monroe Live concert hall as a package deal.

More information on The B.O.B.’s menus and extended live entertainment options will be announced at a later date.
