In Old Bisbee, one venue is getting ready for its grand re-opening taking place on New Years Eve.

The Bisbee Royale was built over 100 years ago and first served as a Baptist Church.

Since then, it has cycled through different owners and uses. It was most recently purchased by Michael Stefaun.

The 8,000 square foot building features a restaurant, wine bar and theater.

Stefaun said,I bought the Royale basically three years ago, almost exactly now. Its taken two and a half years to get to this point. The restaurant I got open about nine months ago, but the theater was a little longer.

But now the theater is finally ready for its first large event.

The Elvis in Bisbeeland New Years Eve costume party will run from 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. and feature two bands, an Elvis impersonator and DJ.

The building is located at 94 Main St. in Bisbee. Tickets to the event are $55 dollars and can be purchased ahead of time or at the door, until sold out.

Stefaun said the New Years Eve party is just the start of what he has planned for the space.

We plan to have some fairly large acts here, thats the goal, Stefaun said.
