The Olde Bar

Bacchus101 | Mar 23, 201505:35 AM

We visited for a couple drinks on Sunday afternoon. The Olde Bar at Bookbinders is exactly that, an old bar ensconced with 3 flatscreen tvs. Another sports bar? Well it is March Madness and probably many bars also are tuned in. The service was very good, the drinks(from the special drink menu) were ok. As we only stopped for drinks we did not try any of the limited menu. When questioned about the future use of the space the hostess said that it would only be the "Olde Bar" and that the adjacent rooms were not in any known future plans. There was a very plain adjacent room open for a small private party but only on that day. The room filled quickly with patrons looking for just what was offered which was not the old style Bookbinders bar but the lively new Olde Bar now there.
