Destiny Brewpub officially closed

First off, Happy New Year everyone. I apologize for the lack of posts. My wife and I had our first child in September and thus my ability to get out and about has been severly limited. And as it seems very difficult to get information about the goings on in downtown Phoenixville via the local paper, my fact finding missions have all but ceased.

Enough of the exscuses. It seems that the 'Reopening Soon' sign on the Destiny Brewpub door was a bit misleading. I am sure it will be reopening, but not as Destiny. There are several signs indicating that the space is for sale or lease. Not sure if the restaurant on the main level is also for sale however.

Not too surprised by this, it was a bit off the beaten path and the layout was strange. Food was good however and it would have been nice to see them integrate the main floor a little better as I think it could have had a chance had they done so.

Here's to hoping something worthwhile takes its spot.

congrats on your new baby.

as far as the phoenix and their lack of news, karin williams was apparently out on maternity leave as well. it looks like she's back, so we may start to get more than a word-for-word copy of the police blotter for a front page. the paper is bad, but what do you expect when you pay your reporters eight bucks an hour and your editor clearly shows no interest in the town?
i'm sorry we lost destiny brewpub. i never truly made it in there- shades of the old smelly moose hall kept me away. iron hill on the other hand is great, though they could shake up that menu occasionally.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…
