Once janleone, 1521 Marion Street is now Tooey's

Tooey’s Off Colfax just opened in the onetime janleone space at 1521 Marion Street. Most recently Club Boca, the address had been vacant for close to a year before the new owners took it over on October 15, and they burned some serious midnight oil in order to get it open on Halloween.

But while janleone was a fine-dining spot, Tooey's is a club through and through, just like Kinga's Room, right next door at 1509 Marion, where Jan Leone's daughter once ran Lounge.
