Players Gets an Overhaul: New owners bring in Jerry Joseph with more big names to come

The roadhouse bar on Century Dr. is still divey, but in a good way.

Players Bar and Grill has new owners and they’ve spruced up the place while keeping the general dive-bar appeal. Josh Maquet, owner of the Astro Lounge, is one of the new owners, so we have good reason to expect some righteous shit from the place. Aside from food, pool and cheap, stiff drinks the new Players is kicking things off with an appearance by Jerry Joseph and Friends on Dec. 1 at 9pm ($10).

 If you’re not familiar with Jerry Joseph, check out the video below of him and Widespread Panic. He wrote the song “Climb to Safety” (one of many he wrote for Panic).

The revamped venue also promises to have high quality production sounds and lighting, which should help in the big-name musician recruitment process. Anyone been there yet?
