Red House Tavern sold to Singer's owner
Ron Singer, who owns Singer's in Mount Vernon, has bought the Red House Tavern and is cooking up all kinds of schemes for the place.
Renovations will begin in two weeks on the Canton neighborhood bar, which closed last year, Singer wrote in an e-mail.
Singer plans to add a second floor and updated decor which is reminiscent of a Colorado ski lodge, complete with fireplace, pool and dart leagues ...
The stage will remain, featuring mild music such as acoustic stuff during brunch and happy hours and jazz, R&B, poetry and comedy during the evenings.
Singer is also applying for outdoor seating and maintaining the building's pre-existing live entertainment license.
Call me crazy, but I think this is a great idea for this space, and if done well, it could be really successful. As long as Singer keeps up a good relationship with his neighbors, this new version of the Red House Tavern will be a hit.
