The face of Jefferson Street is changing once again. 

Today, Mazen Muna announced that he will be closing Plum Lounge, 780 N. Jefferson St., with the last evening of business on Saturday,  Feb. 1.

Plum Lounge friends, family and patrons are invited to bid adieu to the bar and lounge during closing celebrations on Friday, Jan 31 and Saturday, Feb. 1.

"The Plum brand has come to an end of its era," says Muna, who says he will be taking time to reconcept the venue. "The space will be closed for an undisclosed amount of time while it is being re-envisioned."

Plum Lounge opened its doors in June 2015. This summer would have marked its fifth anniversary.

Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for an update as it becomes available.
