Tyler James Pub opens its doors


On Sunday, Phoenixville's newest bar, The Tyler James Pub, opened its doors. Located at 210-212 Bridge Street (formerly occupied by Jester's Sports Bar), Tyler James offers 12 beers on tap as well as a full menu of pub fare. The pub has numerous TVs for sports viewing as well as a pool table, electronic dart boards, arcade games and a shuffleboard table.

Good luck to Steve Blair and his staff. Hopefully the reviews will be a bit more positive than the early ones another local establishment has garnered.

Well, this place can't possibly be worse than Jester's, can it? That place was terrible.

Looks like a good place to go! I just wish they would eliminate smoking all together. One of the problems with Jester's was you walked in and immediately transformed into a human cigarette.

Anyway, good luck to Tyler James Pub!

My BF and I went on Sat for a late lunch. Overall we were quite pleased. The menu is mostly pub sandwiches - which suited us. We each had a sandwich (quite large) served hot and with a generous portion of french fries. Two sandwiches, a few draft beers and soda cost about $30. The front of the restaurant was remodeled and brighter with a new tile floor.
They added a good selection of TVs. The back part was still dark and did not seemed changed since Jesters. It will be good to see what future remodeling brings as well as the upstairs banquet room. The bartender mentioned the plan for upstairs was a nightclub - we hope they have a selection of live music that appeals to all age groups. Live Blues or Jazz be great IMHO. We wish them luck...they could have a winner if they sustain the good food and service.

The O.P.S were the reason Phoenixville was a disaster area for so long. Time for some new ideas....If you want to smoke in a seedy, unwelcoming bar move to Norristown. Face it times are a-changing my friend.

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…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:
