A post this evening on The Book of Face by a guy named Troy Everwine about who I know diddly-squat:
Now that the public notice has been posted, I’m thrilled to announce that my good friend Scoats Mike Scotese (owner – with Patrick McGinley – of the Grey Lodge Pub and Hop Angel Brauhaus) and I have become business partners in a new venture.
We are purchasing the Prince Cafe (Prince Cafee on FB) on Princeton Avenue and Vandike Street in our own neighborhood of Tacony!
We’ve got big plans for the space once we make settlement! (The actual settlement date will be determined by the LCB process of transferring the license, but this will hopefully happen before the end of this year. Stay tuned!)
We plan to remain OPEN for business through a series of renovations, and we absolutely want (and hope) to keep the current bar tenders; A M, Linda, and Marcelle.
Renovations will open up the first floor with large windows, fresh paint and an epic new sign.
We plan to renovate the existing kitchen to include a wood-fired oven and we’ll be offering “craft” pizza to complement a selection of local craft beers. We want to open the kitchen as soon as possible!
The second floor will get a facelift to become a dining room for additional seating, events, and entertainment and there will be a bar and game room that will house the pool table, darts and video games.
Yes, there’s a new name coming once the building is ready: in honor of the company that built Tacony, Disston Saw Works, we will bring you the SawTown Tavern.
We’ll soon be updating you on our progress with photos and blog posts on SawTown.com. We’ll let everyone know when we take possession, and there will be Grand Opening festivities galore once the building is ready. Stay tuned!!!SHARE
