Liam's North to open in Station North
Liam Flynn, who used to run Liam's Pint-Size Pub in Mount Vernon, plans to open a new bar called Liam's North in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District this fall.
Ever since he left the space below Kumari on North Charles Street, Flynn has been scouting for new spots.
Finally, he thinks he's found one -- on West North Avenue by the Windup Space. Renovations still need to be done, and we are months away from seeing anything open. But the wheels are in motion, Flynn told me.
"Everything's coming together," he said.
Ideally, Flynn would like to build a stage and host live music in Liam's North. He'd like to bring in folk, Irish and other such music to the bar ...
That would spice up the neighborhood, for sure. The other bars that have live music near there (Windup, Joe Squared, Metro, Hexagon, etc.) mostly host up-and-coming indie groups from here and around the region. You don't see much traditional Irish music in Station North. Maybe there's a reason for that though. Who knows?
I was surprised to hear that Liam wants to rename the place. Pint-Size Pub is such a great name for a a bar.
"It won't be pint-size anymore," he said.
Good point. And good luck, Liam.
