Jilly’s Music Room to reopen in downtown Akron after pandemic shutdown

Jilly’s Music Room is reopening in downtown Akron after more than a year.

The Northside District club at 111 N. Main St. closed in March 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic brought the entertainment industry to a screeching halt.

Music venues expected the shutdown to last only a few weeks, but here we are in the summer of 2021, still trying to get back to normal.

“It’s been a long, strange 15 months and we’re ready to celebrate live music like never before,” owner Jill Bacon Madden explained in the announcement.

Opening weekend will be July 16-17. Table seating is available through prepaid reservations that can be accessed at jillysmusicroom.com. Walk-ups are still welcome. There is a $5 cover charge if seating remains available.

The Ladies Night will kick things off at 8 p.m. Friday. Hailing from Akron, the five-man cover band bills itself as the “ultimate rocking tribute to pop divas” from the 1990s to 2000s. According to the group’s promotional material, “these five dudes aren’t afraid to wear their love” for Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and other artists on “their pink glittery sleeves.”
