Jalilis unveil plans for downtown nightclub

Posted online
A trio of prominent Springfield restaurateurs known for their vividly decorated fine-dining locales are moving forward with plans to renovate a downtown building as a high-end, Vegas-style nightclub called Zan.

Billy Jalili, wife Sara and brother Mike, who together own Touch and Flame restaurants, bought the 12,000-square-foot building at 311 and 313 S. Patton Ave. from Patton Alley Pub owners Eric and Julie Zackrison for $980,000, according to court records filed in the Zackrisons’ ongoing bankruptcy case.

Billy Jalili said the building’s size and location – not to mention the price – were the factors that solidified the deal.

“We have been in the nightclub/restaurant business since 1985, and we’ve actually been looking for a downtown location for the past year,” he said. “We liked this one, and it was good timing. It was up for sale and in bankruptcy, so we think we got it for a fair value.”

Jalili said building renovations would start soon and last two to three months, with a targeted opening date around Thanksgiving.
