Station Tavern in South Park - Soft Opening

cookieshoes | Sep 7, 2009 09:21 PM

Station Tavern in South Park (built in the spot formerly occupied by the old long-closed Snippy's Tavern) is currently doing it's soft opening, with plans for an official opening mid-September. Burgers and beer, with cocktails also on the menu. They accept credit cards, and if you sit at a table near the bar, a server will come around to take your order. The bar, the stools, and some of the tables were all crafted out of the same wood that the old Snippy's used to be made out of.

For those that don't know, the odd-shaped Snippy's tavern was shaped that way (a triangle on a street corner) due to the fact that the spot used to be a crossing section for trolleys back in the day. The trolleys would pass behind the bar (think of "smart corner" downtown, where the trolleys "slice" through the two buildings). Hence the name of the new Station Tavern, and the traffic light motifs that hang from the ceiling inside the place. Nice architecture to the place, with an outside patio and even a play section for the kiddos. For such a small spot, it's nice how they managed to create a nice open space with lots of light.
