Casey Frank is now the owner of The Villa, a bar and live music venue near the Gruene Historic District.

The takeaway

Frank said she formally took over ownership from Roger Beasley on May 1.

“Once a winery and wedding venue, The Villa has revealed a remarkable transformation as a premier bar and live music venue located just outside of Historic Gruene,” Frank said.

The Villa is open evenings beginning at 4 p.m. during the week and 3 p.m. on Fridays. On weekends, The Villa opens at noon.

The venue offers live music nearly everyday of the week, with at least two acts Thursday-Sunday.
