ABILENE, Texas - If you are looking for some more entertainment options in downtown Abilene, you are in luck!
‘The Majestic' downtown is gearing up for a big launch party on November 1.
Construction on the new 'Neon Parrot Lounge' will start in the next couple weeks
Andrea Robison, owner of The Majestic, is excited for what The Majestic has to offer.
"We were looking for a place to really bring something to the community, in terms of a live performance venue, and we really wanted it to be downtown, there are some neat and exciting things happening downtown and we wanted to be apart of that," said Robison.
Robison is excited for what The Majestic could bring to downtown Abilene.
"I think that having an active downtown really brings something to a community, to be able to say even if you don't know what our calendar is, or what our schedule is, to be able to say lets go downtown and see what's happening at the Majestic," said Robison.
The new space will be used as a live entertainment venue featuring live bands and will continue to host events such as graduations, wedding receptions, birthday parties and much more.
The downtown building dates back to 1885. It used to be a bank, then a grocery store, and in 1908, it became Abilene's first moving pictures house.
