Today's Citizen-Times carried a piece about a new bar coming to town which will be in the space formerly occupied by the Asheville Music Zone. (Actually Ash scooped the C-T by two days but better late than never.) The Whiskey Tavern is being touted by its owners as an "upscale tavern" that will offer ten draft beers, including five from local breweries. As befits its name, a large selection of whiskeys will be offered as well. The menu will be varied from pub food to upscale entrees. The venue will seat up to 350 people in 6000 square feet of space and offer accoustic music in the evenings.
I'm looking forward to the opening of this restaurant and bar. Best of luck to the new owners.
