I’ll just buy a bar-The Old Crow Bar

February 26th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments


It was only a couple weeks ago I posted on my love for bars.  I have so often heard, around closing time,  a group of friends declare “We should buy a bar.”  Well friends, I have done just that.  Part of me is as excited as a school girl and part of me is experiencing sheer terror and night sweats.  It is certainly a big responsibility but one I embrace.

From my years of restaurant, bar and nightclub management, this is what I’ve learned.  A name is is important.  It has something to do with feng shui.  The name of the new place will be the Old Crow Bar.  A little play on words and a mix of old and new.

Next, live music is important.  It’s important to me and to the atmosphere I want others to experience.  So I’m building a huge stage with concert-like lighting.  I want to bring all kinds of quality entertainment to the masses and have already booked classic rock, indie, country and bluegrass acts.

Finally, atmosphere is everything.  I know for a bar to be successful it has to be comfortable and safe.  The place I am opening has had a few problems in the past, so I am going out of my way to make sure people will be able to kick back with no trouble.  I want a place where everyone feels welcome.

Some say my partners and I are a little crazy for jumping in to this venture but hey, I love bars.
