Say hello to the Water Street Tavern

water street tavernA new bar named the Water Street Tavern has appeared on (you guessed it) Water Street, right across from Peter's Pub.

Midnight Sunner F. Pants McFadden sent me this photo of the spot.

Anybody been here yet?

This stretch of Water Street is like a secret cove, tucked away downtown. The best way to get there is to turn left from Light Street -- before Light intersects with Pratt Street. 

I'll try and stop by sometime soon and see what the deal is.

It's no Nadds.

Gooooo Nadds!!!!

Call me juvenile, but that's funny!

Back in the 80's it was known as Water Street Saloon. Alot of good times use to be had in those days.

I'm psyched about this place, because apparently there's a creperie there also and it's like 2 blocks from my office. MMMMM nutella crepes.

I also heard that next summer they're going to work with Vellagio's next door to try to bring back the Water Street alley parties that they used to have back in the day. That would be pretty awesome because we need a good happy hour spot downtown. My office always goes to Nick's and it's so far!

The waste removal for those businesses around Water Street is horrible. The alley and surrounding area is infested with rats. Garbage not in dumsters just laying on the ground etc...

It's a nice place; I went in there for a drink on Saturday. Along with the hotel bars that have opened nearby, downtown is starting to have some good bar hopping options.

It also doesn't help that the owner of Vellegias picks up his food deliveries in his Dodge Dart, where they sit for wayyy to long.

the owner of Vellegias picks up his food deliveries in his Dodge Dart,

Dodge Dart? Hilarious.Do they even make that anymore or since the sixties? Restaurants get their food from purveyors like Sysco. They don't do their own market shopping.

its ridiculous.
