Blue Bear Tavern Closed (Again) but What’s Next?


HughE Dillon reports that 12th Street’s Blue Bear Tavern is out of commission again. The bar which replaced the legendary and sometimes notorious Doc Watson’s seemed to struggle from the beginning and was closed for part of February before having a “grand reopening.” Eater is rumor-mongering that the team behind Farmers’ Cabinet is scoping the place out. Us, we hear a shamrocked conglomerate is looking at the space.
