Houlilhan’s Knocked Down to Become Miller’s Ale House

Miller's Ale House is under construction in Lake Grove at the former site of Houlihan's, which was recently knocked down to make room for the popular bar and grill chain.


Construction is underway at Sivana Salon, with the hopes to have its new addition ready to cater to its expanding clientele by mid February.

Owner Steven Melito, who owns not only the salon but also the building where its located, said Sivana’s neighbor St. James Natural Food was looking to downsize roughly one year ago, prompting him to take the third store in the strip.

“As a businessman and someone who sets goals for myself I’m always looking to expand and to grow,” he said.
