Mollyz moving

Posted By on Thu, Nov 29, 2007 at 3:38 PM

Gottingen Street might be losing another mainstay. Upscale diner Mollyz and upstairs bar Menz (both at 2104 Gottingen) will both be leaving their current digs sometime in January, and re-locating. Where are they headed? "We're looking at a couple of different locations. We haven't nailed anything down as of yet," says Doug Melanson, co-owner of both. But don't expect the popular businesses to stray too far. "We want to stay in the north end," says Melanson, who found out in October that his holdings were being evicted from their current home. The space has been sold to local business mover-and-shaker Mickey MacDonald, who also owns nearby Palooka's Gym. Mollyz currently spans two buildings—MacDonald plans to tear down one building to make way for a parking lot, and says he might start a coffee shop for the area's youth in the other; a place for kids to gather and learn some business skills. Melanson and co-owner David Landry are optimistic about the forced relocation. "We view it as an opportunity to grow the businesses and to bring them to the next level," says Melanson, who hopes to finalize the location of the new space and start construction at some point in December. Contact Mollyz at 405-3376, and Menz at 446-6969.
