It’s been well over a month since Old Town’s neighborhood coffeehouse and pub has closed it’s doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As many are eager to get back to enjoying the pub’s Cheers-reminiscent atmosphere and nightly entertainment, it looks to still be a long road ahead until things are back to “normal”. While Old Town Public House awaits a reopening with no timeline yet in sight, we wanted to take a look at where the familiar faces are today and how they’re holding up.
Living within the historic brick walls of Old Town Public House, Public Grounds has been bringing people together since April 2019. Overnight, the lively, bustling OTPH scene transforms into a warm and welcoming coffee shop with a hipster flare fully equipped with high-end ingredients and a professional espresso machine.
DID YOU KNOW? The shop in this photo has been the site of many different gathering spaces since it was constructed in the late 1880s. Can anyone name the businesses currently inhabiting this building that was once known as Ma Harrill’s Dime Store and later the Crouse Variety Store?
