Mez, a restaurant-nightclub-movie theater in the uptown EpiCentre complex, will be closing permanently in two weeks.

The company announced the plans on its Facebook page late Sunday. A spokesman for the EpiCentre said that negotiations with a new tenant are progressing, and the complex plans to announce the new tenant in a week or so.

“We are very sad to announce today that Mez will be closing its doors on Jan 27th,” Mez said. “Look for a new movie concept to replace Mez Feb 2013.”

EpiCentre is currently undergoing a $15 million renovation effort, designed to put the finishing touches on the complex’s construction. The complex’s management is also hoping to and help attract a more diverse clientele and change its reputation for being primarily a nightspot.
