I spoke to one of the construction guys on Saturday, and he confirmed that the kitchen area, which was in the middle, will be eliminated, creating a longer bar. He also indicated that the whole place is being entirely remodeled.

I hope the general look and feel (classic, bar look) is somewhat preserved. I'd just hate to see it turn into some swanky loungey type of place.

Interesting that they are eliminating the kitchen area, although the bathrooms presumably will continue to be in between the backroom and the front area. I think if they had reasonably priced beers and eliminated some of the televisions, that could be a pretty good neighborhood bar and probably would attract fewer problem customers.

Ian, I believe the old Barrow Street Bar only had one large-ish TV, and one very small TV. It never really seemed like a sports bar, to me, although I have watched games there.

One of the workmen told me that the owner also owns Michael Anthony's and owned the former PJ Ryan's.

I wouldn't expect anything less of JC.

Speaking of which, I guess the Flamingo is permanently gone?

Ain’t the internet amazing? You can really do some digging. (same guy???)


One … MICHAEL A. RYAN, CHAIRMAN, JC PLANNING BOARD

Two ..guess who owns Michael Anthony’s ? “The restaurant is owned by Michael Ryan, a highly reknown Jersey City proprietor who also serves as Chairman of the Jersey City Planning Board. ”

Three …guess who used to own PJ Ryan’s … Michael Anthony Ryan former owner of PJ Ryan's Pub and Restaurant, in Jersey City (and someone on this thread mentioned he is opening there again)

Hey I wonder if he needs any stinking permits… I don’t need no stinking permits!!

Side question…how can someone who owns a business in JC be the chairman of the JC planning board? He could be putting the brakes on other businesses that may pop up and take some of his customers. Sounds like a conflict of interest to me. Hey wasn’t the brakes just applied on Barcade????

True about #61…you newcomers know how to put pressure on people so maybe the city is starting to pay attention. When something like this (a bar springing up) comes up they know they can’t sit on it. That’s fresh!

Again I an not anti-bar , I left my mark in (and outside )many a bar back in the day.

I'm actually excited that someone who runs a good, long-term establishments is working on the place instead of someone in-it-for-a-minute.

I spent a fair share of time at P.J.'s and when it was sold, it went way downhill.

Michael Anthony's has been pretty successful since they opened it.

Following their track-record, I'm sure Michael and the fam from PJ's/MA's wouldn't be involved if they didn't think they could create something good and sustainable.

As of yesterday, there was absolutely, 100% a reddish-orange stop work order sign posted on Barrow Street Bar's western-facing window.

I'm a bit bummed that the owners also own a couple of other bars. I enjoyed the true neighborhood bar feel of Barrow Street Bar, where the owner was always around.

Evidence of a solid business plan from the get-go.

Didn't Chris just get done telling us that he didn't live in JC?

Right, but one does not have to live in JC to be around all the time.

True.
Maybe that was just his excuse for not shoveling the snow.

I am fairly new to JC--four years. I have, however, learned a great deal about this city in a short time from the many local merchants and residents I have come to know. First, it is clear to me that JC's unprofessional and unsophisticated political leadership hasn't a clue how to manage a city. Second, the pervasive corruption allows a few key people to block changes that might impact their personal financial interest or that of those who are "connected." I support sensible regulations that promote a solid commercial foundation for business and protecting residents. They are not mutually exclusive.

The "stop work" order has been removed. Perhaps renovation will continue at Barrow Street Bar.

Construction has resumed at Barrow Street. I wonder if they'll keep the name Barrow Street Bar.

Fingers crossed that the new Barrow Street Bar will be open by football season. It appears that much of the work is done.
