The B.O.B. (an acronym for Big Old Building) is located in downtown Grand Rapids. The 70,000-square-foot, four- story, red brick building was constructed in 1903 as Judson’s grocery warehouse. It stood vacant for decades before The Gilmore Collection began its transformation, saving it from demolition. The B.O.B is comprised of Judsons Steakhouse, Gills Blue Crab Lounge, Monkey Bar, Resto Lounge, Eve Lounge, Crush Nightclub, Bobarinos, Dr. Grins Comedy Club, and B.O.B.’s Brewery.
