BUSINESS BRIEFS: Downtown dining options changing


The Square in downtown Murfreesboro is now without one of its restaurants.

PJs Pizza, which was located between Maple Street Grill and Wall Street, has closed.

The pizza restaurant, which opened in mid-2011, announced on its Facebook page: “PJs is officially closed. We want to thank all of our loyal customers who kept us going. The restaurant is for sale if you know of anyone interested in buying it or the equipment.”

On the west side of the Square, 3 Brothers Deli & Brewhouse will also close its doors – and move next to Social Nightclub.

According to Rob Fortney, who owns both locations with his brother, Eric, Social Nightclub has been divided and a new entrance will be added.

Additionally, 3 Brothers will expand its offerings of craft brews on tap and live music entertainment.
