See more photos on page 7. PAWTUCKET – One of the first proposed uses from the new owners of the expansive old Narragansett Bay Insurance Company property at 233 Main St. is for a new jazz and soul lounge and restaurant. Timerante Andreozzi, a man with extensive experience managing establishments in Providence over the years, presented his plans for a lounge called The Central as he sought a liquor license before the City Council last week, saying he wants to create an "entertainment environment for adults," pairing good music with soul food. Andreozzi, of 560 Mineral Spring Ave. in Pawtucket, said he has 20 years of experience in the business. He said he's managed and run most of the clubs in Providence, as well as Vibe Lounge in Pawtucket, but none really serve adults in this kind of way. He said he plans to incorporate jazz and soul from the 1930s to 1950s, as well as rhythm and blues. He said he wants this to be the central live music location for adults around Rhode Island, hence the name.
