On the heels of the recent announcement of the reopening of The Living Room, another closed club is coming back from the dead.  Don Hill’s, the music club located at 511 Greenwich Street, closed in 2011, shortly after the death of its namesake founder.  But there are now plans to reopen it pretty much as it was.  The club will be renamed The Hills.  Here is what the the new club has to say:

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, The Hills NYC was birthed from the iconic venue Don Hill’s, which closed its doors for the last time in 2011. Reset, rebuilt and refocused, The Hills NYC is here to bring back Don’s original vision of a legendary venue which showcases Rock and Roll icons and NY talent. We are COMING SOON! & We are here to keep NY real.

 There is no word yet on when this reopening will take place.
